Average New York City Commute is Over 6 Hours a Week

A new report released by the City Comptroller shows that New Yorkers spend an average of 49.1 hours a week working and commuting. The average commute time for New Yorkers is 6 hours and 18 minutes, which is longer than any other city in the country. While public transportation is the method most people use to get to and from work in New York, there are many people who drive to work in the city as well. One can assume that these drivers are at a high risk for getting traffic tickets in New York during their commute – for example, a driver on his way into the office might check his emails while stopped at a red light in order to get a head start on his day. If a police officer sees the driver checking his phone, he may issue a cell phone ticket, which carries a hefty fine and 5 points.
