Alaskans have longer commutes than most Americans; the average commute is 50 miles one way. The high cost of housing also pushes commuters farther from employers.
Anchorage's Share-a-Ride program offers commuting options for employees, including carpools, vanpools (for commuters of up to 20 miles), and a program for employees with disabilities. For complete information and links to resources, go to http://www.muni.org
