🚗Worst commutes in Florida: Find out where your county ranks

America’s commutes keep getting longer as people move farther away from the office, census data shows

(Department of Transportation)

Commuting easily ranks as one of the least enjoyable parts of a person’s day. Commuters encounter more physical health problems, and low-income commuters are less likely to gain financial stability—among a host of other negative impacts. And yet, America’s commutes keep getting longer as people move farther away from the office, according to census data.

Stacker compiled a list of counties with the worst commutes in Florida using data from the U.S. Census Bureau. Counties are ranked by longest average commute time according to 2020 5-year estimates.
