The average American commutes at least 25 minutes to work each day. The average Dallas driver spends 28 minutes driving to work — but keep in mind, that’s just the average! A 2010 study ranked Dallas-Fort Worth as the metropolitan area with the worst commute in the country. Houston and Austin weren’t far behind.
Dallas drivers lose, on average, 53 hours a year being stuck in traffic. The Texas Department of Transportation is making efforts to improve the commute for Dallas-area drivers — with added DART light rail routes and expansion planned along I-35 — but many drivers won’t notice changes immediately.
