There are few things that make us more excited than transportation maps! And HERE’S an apt, good one.
The U.S. Census has mapped the self-reported commute times of respondents from its 2013 American Community survey. Above is a look at the Atlanta metro with a skew to the east side of the city.
Decatur averages between a 20-30 minute commute throughout all the census districts.
Downtown Atlanta, parts of Midtown and Buckhead have average commutes below 20 minutes. If you zoom in closer, you may also note that Druid Hills also registers an average commute below 20 minutes, likely due to the very close proximity to Emory.
In the Atlanta metro area, only Fulton and Clayton have average commute times below 30 minutes. (The whole of Clarke County, where Athens, GA and UGA is located, has an average community below 20 minutes.)
And just for kicks, above is the average Atlanta commute times way back in 1990. 🙂
Take a look and tell us what interesting trends you noticed!
