According to research conducted by the American Community Survey, the average travel time for workers aged 16+ to work is 26.9 minutes, about 16 miles if driving a car. But it’s a different story if you don’t have a car or the money to pay for public transportation and all you can do is walk.

In Georgia, an 18-year-old high school student from Cobb County walks 7 miles to work each day and receives a new car through a fundraising effort organized by a kind woman. The average human walking speed is 3 to 4 miles per hour, or 1 mile every 15 to 20 minutes. So he had to walk 105-140 minutes to get to work and another 105-140 minutes to go home. In total he had to travel 14 miles or more than 3.5 hours each day, barely on foot.
