Commutes in Ohio's counties better than US average

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - This might make the morning commute go a little smoother.

A new report from the U.S. Census Bureau says that the typical commute to work for those living in Ohio's three biggest counties is less than national average of 25 and a half minutes.

The report that came out Tuesday says the average one-way work commute for people living in Cuyahoga County is just less than 24 minutes.

For those living in Hamilton County, the average is a little over 22 minutes while Franklin County residents have a one-way commute of just under 22 minutes.

The survey also shows that only 5% of Ohio residents take an hour or more to get to work. The national average is around 8%.
