Broward To Dade Commute Busiest In The State

MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) – If you live in Broward and get stuck in insane rush hour traffic because you have to drive to and from Miami-Dade for your job – you’re not alone.

New commuter estimates released Tuesday by the U.S. Census shows 125,000 Broward residents drive to Miami-Dade for their jobs making it the largest cross-county commute in the state.

The next highest group of cross-county commuters in the state are the 81,000 Seminole County residents who drive to Orange County for jobs in the metro Orlando area.

Some 1 million Miami-Dade residents make their commutes within the county each day — the 7th highest number of commuters in the nation.

Broward County has the nation’s 15th largest number of commuters with 639,000 residents commuting within the county.
