Another interesting thing about Buena Park, despite not being a huge city, is that there is a relatively high proportion of people living here who are young, single, and upwardly-mobile professionals.

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.

Like elsewhere in America, most people in Buena Park use a private automobile to get to work. But notably, a substantial number of Buena Park‘s citizens do make use of public transit in their daily commute, primarily riding the bus.
