In the US, most working Americans— about 108 million of them — drive alone in a car, truck, or van to get to work. On average, Americans commute about 25 minutes each way to and from work.

But when you live in a major US city like New York City or Los Angeles, how you get from point A to point B changes significantly.

And in most highly populated cities, even if you're only traveling a mere mile or so, you wind up spending more of your life commuting.

Using data collected from the US Census Bureau, personal-finance site WalletHub ranked 116 of the most populated cities based on the average number of minutes residents spend traveling from home to work. Using that same data, Business Insider also looked at how people commute to and from work in each city.
