The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

Getting to Work

How you get to work – car, bus, train or other means – and how much of your day it takes to do so is a large quality of life and financial issue. Especially with gasoline prices rising and expected to continue doing so, the length and means of one's commute can be a financial burden. Some neighborhoods are physically located so that many residents have to drive in their own car, others are set up so many walk to work, or can take a train, bus, or bike. The greatest number of commuters in Falcon Rd / Belt Line Rd neighborhood spend between 30 and 45 minutes commuting one-way to work (50.0% of working residents), which is at or a bit above the average length of a commute across all U.S. neighborhoods.
