We haven't taken a jaunt into the land of internet rankings in awhile, so this new list from Kiplinger comes at the perfect time. After all, how would you get through the week without knowing where Cleveland ranks nationally for commuters?
6th, it turns out, which makes sense: unless you have to take the slog down I-480 or some of the area's other notorious congestion spots, you probably have a speedy commute to work. And even the trouble spots, well, they're not so troubling in the grand scheme of things.
According to their pile of numbers, Cleveland has the "highest rate of public transit users on the list, with 4.8% of its residents taking advantage of the city's buses and trolleys."
Here's the rest of the data Kiplinger compiled:
Average Commute Time 23.9
Yearly Congestion Cost per Commuter: $423
Average Length of Commute: 10.81 miles
Cost of Regular Gas: $3.27
Yearly Delays per Commuter: 19 hours
Yearly Fuel Wasted per Commuter: 16 gallons
Public Transit Users: 4.8%
And with that, you can be sure that whatever route you're taking home tonight, there will undoubtedly be an unexplainable, massive traffic jam. You're welcome.
