CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. — How long does it take you to get to work, Chappaqua?

The average commute for Chappaqua's zip code is 43.4 minutes, according to WNYC's map of average commuting times , which uses information released recently by the U.S. Census Bureau.

A majority of Westchester County commuters drive by themselves. Some 60 percent of commuters drove alone while 20 percent took public transportation, the Census Bureau's 2011 American Community Survey found.

"The average travel time for workers who commute by public transportation is higher than that of workers who use other modes," Brian McKenzie, a Census Bureau statistician said in a statement. “For some workers, using transit is a necessity, but others simply choose a longer travel time over sitting in traffic.”

The average one-way daily commute for U.S. workers was 25.5 minutes, with one in four commuters working out of their county, the American Community Survey found.

People who commuted by public transportation were more likely to have longer commute times and New York had the highest rate of long commutes.

About 5 percent of Westchester County's workforce worked from home, the survey found.
