One downside of living in Rockville is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In Rockville, the average commute to work is 32.45 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average.

For a lot of people, the subway helps to get to and from their jobs every morning, which benefits everyone in the Rockville area by reducing both traffic and air pollution.
