Mapping Our Commutes, One Zip Code at a Time
As frustrating as long commutes can be, they're also a badge of honor, proof that you're more Angelino than that guy who walks to the office every day. Traffic is a shared experience: it typifies our city and defines our culture. Now there's an interactive map that tracks our commuting patterns — where we live, where we work, and the distances between.
