Michigan ranks in the middle of all states for commute time, and slightly less than the “Top Ten” and peer state averages.     

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.
