Unless you work in or near your neighborhood, you will commute to work. How much time will you spend in the car, bus or on your bicycle getting there? Of course there are other ways to commute, but you get the drift.

We've separated the Tucson area by zip code and used information from Graphiq.com to see where people live the farthest from their jobs.

Some zip codes look at first glance like the place to be if you want to be close to work. Zip code 85707, for example, shows the shortest average commute time at 8.1 minutes. The map reveals that this is Davis-Monthan Air Force Base. One must assume that those who live on base are likely to work on base.

Average commute times aren't exact, but are very close. Information wasn't available for all zip codes in the Tucson area. Commute times are one way.

Commute information for the Tucson area:

Average commute time: 24.4 minutes
