Travel Time to Work by Duration

Los Angeles is a sprawling county, and that means people travel relatively far between home and work.  In 2017, a staggering number of 2,361,607 workers, who were at least 16 years of age and worked away from home, reported that they traveled 30 minutes or more per day to go to work.  That number translates to 52% of all workers in the population.

There is a direct link between life satisfaction and commute time according to a study from the University of Waterloo in Canada.
