Do you have NYC’s worst commute?

The commute in NYC is an average of 48 minutes. That’s 13 minutes longer than the rest of the United States.

This month PIX11’s Greg Mocker is looking for the worst commutes in and around the city.

This one features Regine from Rosedale, Queens. She works in Midtown. She says, on a good day, it can take her an hour and a half. She tries to keep transit costs low by taking a bus and switching to the subway (and then another subway).

All this month, PIX11 will profile what it’s like to commute in and around the area. It’s not only the number and frequency of trains and buses that causes frustration. The amount of traffic on city streets plays a part.

Send Greg Mocker your ideas on your routes and rides by email mocker@pix11.com or on twitter and instagram.

Add the hashtag #mockmycommute to help keep things organized.

At the end of the month, Mocker will submit a report to elected leaders, the MTA and transportation advocacy groups.
