About 600,000 Americans travel more than 90 minutes each way—more than 50 miles—to get from home to work each day, according to a new U.S. Census Bureau report.

“Megacommutes” are known for being worst in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and New Orleans. Megacommuters tend to be male, older, married, and paid higher than the average worker, according to Census data.

Nearly 11 million people have what’s considered just “long commutes” from home to work, averaging just over an hour each way, according to the report. New York averaged the most “long commuters,” followed by Maryland and New Jersey.
