One downside of living in Laurel, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 33.59 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.
Like elsewhere in America, most people in Laurel use a private automobile to get to work. But notably, a substantial number of Laurel‘s citizens do make use of public transit in their daily commute, primarily riding the subway. This helps more people get to work with less air pollution, and require fewer highways to get them there.
