Census: San Francisco area tops 'mega-commuters'
March 06, 2013, 05:00 AM

Some workers in the San Francisco Bay Area suffer through commutes that are longer and cover greater distances than in any other major metro area in the country.

The region has a higher percentage of workers described in new Census data as "mega-commuters" -- people who spend at least 90 minutes and travel 50 miles getting to the office in the morning.

About 2 percent of full-time workers living from Contra Costa County in the East Bay, Marin County to the north and San Jose to the south are classified as mega-commuters, compared with the national average of less than 1 percent.

About 587,000 people nationwide meet the mega-commuting standard.

It's the first time the Census reported the demographic.
