Rolla in Top 5 of Best Commuter Cities in Missouri

May 19

Rolla is rated # 5 in list of Best Commuter Cities in Missouri

Excerpt from the May 2015 Obrella Insider, Exclusive insurance reports, news and information

The average American’s commute to work is about 25 minutes. But residents of the best commuter cities in Missouri only spend 16 minutes getting to and from work, and 65 percent commute for less than 15 minutes.

Besides being inconvenient, long commutes can impact our lives in a number of ways. For example, long commutes can result in higher auto insurance premiums and affect overall health. On the other hand, people can benefit from short commutes and we want to recognize the 25 best commuter cities in Missouri for bringing these benefits to their residents.

To create this list, Obrella referenced the 2013 Census Survey and found cities with more than 5,000 residents. Then, we analyzed the most recent survey released by the U.S. Census Bureau and took a look at the traffic data of those cities.

#5 – Rolla

The county seat of Phelps County, Rolla is consistently showered with kudos. In addition to being honored as one of the most livable and desirable communities in America, Rolla boasts Blue Ribbon Schools and is home to Missouri University of Science and Technology, which is ranked as one of the best technological research universities in the nation.
