New Yorkers have longest commute in nation

NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

New Yorkers have the longest commute in the nation.

That's according to a report by the Partnership for New York City.

It says New Yorkers on average spend 48 minutes commuting to work and about the same time returning home.

The report says that's 13 minutes longer than the national average.

The report by the nonprofit Partnership urged the city to increase its public transportation options.

It says over half of commuters between Brooklyn and Queens have to drive due to "limited" public transit options.
