Commuting was a daily habit for most American workers prior to the COVID-19 outbreak.The average cost of living in the United States is $4,500.According to the United States Census Bureau, people spent an average of 5 hours per week commuting in 2021.SBureau of the Census

Although the average person’s commute time has been steadily increasing, the widespread shift to remote work in 2021 is reversing this trend – possibly for the long term.

Data from the United StatesSAccording to the Census Bureau, the amount of time spent commuting by the average person has been increasing.The average commute time to work in 2021 was 27 minutes.1 minute vs. 25 minutesIn 2010, three minutes were spent.While the difference may not appear to be significant, it adds up to 18 minutes per week or 16 hours per year.

Commuting has monetary costs as well.According to the Texas A&M Transportation Institute’s 2021 Urban Mobility Report, the average American commuter spends nearly seven full working days per year stuck in traffic, costing them over $1,000.Long commutes, particularly traffic delays, can be detrimental to productivity for those who drive alone.

The average total time spent commuting and working prior to COVID-19 was 43 minutes.Weekly time commitment: 4 hoursWhen calculating the average number of hours spent commuting (4), consider the following factors.5 hours), compared to the 43 hours spent on work and commuting on average.Newly-remote workers in the United States have gained an average of 10 hours per week.4% of their workweek was returned to them

Some areas, however, are more likely than others to have gained significant time back from their commutes.Remote workers in coastal states gained the most time back, while those in central states likely saved the least.

Researchers at CoPilot, a car shopping app, analyzed data from the United States to see which cities are saving the most time by not having to commute.SPrior to the pandemic, the Census Bureau’s 2021 American Community Survey calculated what percentage of the average workweek was spent commuting to and from work.This percentage was then used to rank cities.

The researchers also took into account the percentage of workers who commuted alone by car prior to COVID-19, which is the mode of transportation that is least conducive to multitasking.

The following are the major cities that have gained the most time from their commutes.
