A Map of Michigan Commute Times

Where do people make the longest drives to work?

The people who live in the outer ring of Detroit suburbs, especially areas like Lapeer and northern St. Clair County, have the longest drives to work in Michigan.

The Grand Rapids area does not see as long of commutes on average, though there are some areas in Newaygo County where people make longer commutes.

The Census Bureau reports that Cedarville Township in Menominee County technically has the longest commutes in the state, averaging 53.1 minutes. With just 247 people in the township and a large margin of error, take the numbers with a grain of salt.

See the map below for the average length of a commute in each city, village and township in Michigan and some other information about commuters.
