U.S. Census reveals Washington State’s mega-commutes

The U.S. Census Bureau refers to anyone who commutes at least 90 minutes and 50 miles to work as a “mega-commuter”.  A study released by the bureau found that nearly 600,000 road-hardened Americans qualify for the designation – about one in 122 full-time workers.  These brave souls spend a horrific amount of time each day trapped in a car, train or bus to make their daily dollar.
