Lubbock takes 4th place on short commute list

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Lubbock grabbed 4th place on a U.S. Census list of the shortest commutes in the nation Thursday, reporting an average commute time of 15.5 minutes.

Great Falls, Montana took first place with an average commute time of just 14.2 minutes. Lewiston, a community that straddles Idaho and Washington, took second with 14.7 minutes, Grand Forks ND was third with a commute of 15.1 minutes and Missoula, Montana was right behind Lubbock at 15.8 minutes.

Wide roads, low traffic and high speed limits all help reduce commute times, while towns hosting major universities have a higher percentage of walkers and bike riders.

The average U.S. commute is 20 minutes.
