Michigan ranks in the middle of all states for commute time, nearly equal to the “Top Ten” average but shorter than the average commute time of peer states.      

What It Is: The average number of minutes it takes for a worker to travel to  and from work.

Why It Matters: A shorter commute time means easier access to jobs for workers and less productive time wasted during commutes.
