Which City in Montana Has the ‘Best Commute in the United States’?

If you want a short commute, you should live in a small Montana city.  The ten best commutes are all places with populations of less than 300,000 people.

The U.S. Census Bureau has recently released their ‘Commuting in the United States’ report, using information from 2009-2012.  They found that the average worker has a 25-minute commute, which is basically unchanged from 2000.

The best commute in the U.S. is in Great Falls, Montana, at 14 minutes.  Lewiston, Idaho and Grand Forks, North Dakota are next best.

One in eight workers get to work in ten minutes or less, while one in 50 take an average of 90 minutes or more. New York has the worst commute, at about 35 minutes.

Another interesting tidbit from this report: Men leave for work earlier than women.  Almost 40% of guys leave before 7:00 A.M., while less than 25% of women leave that early.
