Does this mean that Frederick and Washington counties don't have long commutes? We're all headed to the same place.

Jefferson County (probably Berkeley too) has 45% of its residents traveling outside the county to work. Why isn't this every included in the Metro area. I only commute 47 miles to my job but I'm not considered as part of the Census Bureau's numbers.

How about an average commute time of 60 minutes, which can run into 1.25 hours and on some occasions 2 hours.(One hour is a good day).I commute from Huntingtown to Silver Spring. It's amazing how far I can get in a relatively short period of time. And then I hit the daily backup on the beltway that starts prior to MD Route 650 / New Hampshire Avenue. The commute from that point to my office can takes 20 - 45 minutes or more some days. When is MD going to do something about that stretch of the beltway?
