Transportation Network Map

Travelling to Work

Less than half of Aurora's residents (47%) travel more than 30 minutes to get to work each day, this number has significantly gone down since 2018. The following charts show aggregate travel times to work and their means of transportation to get there. The average commute to work for Aurora's residents is 29.9 minutes. One effect of the COVID-19 pandemic is that 10.8% of Aurora residents are now working remotely. This could have a result on the minutes travelled to work and the number of residents that are now travelling less to work each day.
