Workers in DC Metro Area Suffers from the Longest Commute Time in US



TriNet's latest SMBeat has found the average commute time for small business employees nationwide is 28.7 minutes, with workers in Washington D.C. having the longest journey.

The SMBeat report is a monthly analysis of small business employment and human capital economic indicators.

January's report features an in-depth analysis of employee commute times throughout the United States, including both demographic and geographic trends.

A key finding of the report is that the Washington, D.C. metro area has the longest commute time across TriNet's clients, averaging 31.2 minutes. It is followed closely by New York with 30.2 minutes.

Long commute times can be a burden on workers and affect employee happiness and productivity. The length of time an employee spends commuting is impacted by a number of factors.

Geographical characteristics like population density cause increased road congestion and subsequently increase commute times. Also, demographic factors such as earnings, marital status and gender contribute to the willingness of employees to spend time getting to work.

Employers can alleviate the stress caused by long commute times by offering perks, such as flexible start times, telecommuting, and transit benefits. These perks ultimately impact the bottom line by reducing costs associated with employee turnover and poor employee productivity.

Key findings - sourced from TriNet's more than 8,800 customers and over 230,000 worksite employees in the U.S.
