Mean Travel Time to Work

Value: 19.3 minutes
Measurement Period: 2015
Location: Allen County
Categories: Transportation / Personal Vehicle Travel Transportation / Roadway Congestion
What is this Indicator?  This indicator shows the average daily travel time to work in minutes for workers 16 years of age and older.   The Ohio mean travel time to work is 22.6 minutes.
Why this is important?  Lengthy commutes cut into workers' free time and can contribute to health problems such as headache, anxiety, and increased blood pressure. More time spent commuting also translates to increased consumption of fossil fuels used for transportation, which is costly for workers as well as for the environment.
