In Buena Park, however, the average commute to work is quite long. On average, people spend 30.55 minutes each day getting to work, which is significantly higher than the national average.

But notably, a substantial number of Buena Park‘s citizens do make use of public transit in their daily commute, primarily riding the bus.
