One downside of living in Joliet is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In Joliet, the average commute to work is 32.68 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average. On the other hand, local public transit is widely used in the town, so leaving the car at home and taking transit is often a viable alternative.
Despite the fact that it is a small town, Joliet has quite a few people who take public transportation – mostly the bus - for their daily commute to work. This helps to fill a real need in the town for affordable transportation.
