Work travel times shorter in Kansas, Missouri than nation

Kansans and Missourians had shorter travel times to work than the nation did in 2000, according to data the U.S. Census Bureau released Monday.


The average travel time to work was 19 minutes for Kansans, 23.8 minutes for Missourians and 25.5 minutes on average for the nation, the Census Bureau said in a written release. The average travel time to work in the Midwest was 23.2 minutes in 2000.

The percentage of workers who drove alone to work was 81.5 percent in Kansas, 80.5 percent in Missouri, 79.6 percent in the Midwest and 75.7 percent in the nation in 2000.

Among the 128.3 million workers in the nation in 2000:

76 percent drove alone to work;

12 percent carpooled;

4.7 percent used public transportation;

3.3 percent worked at home;

2.9 percent walked to work; and

1.2 percent used other means to get to work, including motorcycles and bicycles.

According to the report, Journey to Work: 2000, about 53 percent of all workers headed to their jobs between 6:30 a.m. and 8:29 a.m. Twenty percent of workers left for work between midnight and 6:29 a.m., up 2 percentage points, or 4.8 million workers, from a decade earlier, the largest increase in any time period of the day.

The full report is available on the Census Bureau's Web site.
