Study Description

MASS.commuting. A joint project of the UMass Donahue Institute and MassINC (for MassHousing).

Michael Goodman, Dana Ansel and Robert Nakosteen, with James Palma, John Gaviglio, Greg Leiserson, Rebecca Loveland and Rachel Deyette Werkema

(October 2004)

This study, exploring commuting patterns between regions in Massachusetts, finds that commute times in Massachusetts, which were roughly in line with the national average two decades ago, have since increased considerably and at a much faster pace than the nation as a whole. Time lost to commuting increased by nearly 20 percent between 1990 and 2000. The paper examines increasing commuting times and the factors contributing to those increases.
