The United States Census Bureau defines "mega-commuters" as people who travel at least 90 minutes or more than 50 miles to work each day. Nearly 600,000 Americans have a mega-commute, according to the Census Bureau, and 10.8 million travel at least an hour to work each way.
Over 192,000 people commute into Orleans Parish, according to the Census (including people traveling to and from work within the city).
