One downside of living in Joliet, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 32.68 minutes every day commuting to work. However, local public transit is widely used. For those who would prefer to avoid driving entirely and leave their car at home, it may be an option to use the transit instead.
For a small town, Joliet has a lot of people who use public transit to get to work, and those that do mostly ride the bus. This suggests that a real need for low-cost transportation in Joliet exists, and local transit is helping to meet that need.
