Nearly 40 percent of the Fredericksburg area’s workers commute to jobs outside the region, according to a comprehensive study conducted by the University of Mary Washington.

It also revealed that more than 50 percent of Fredericksburg-area commuters spend at least two hours a day driving to and from work. According to the study, the area’s commuters are more likely to have higher levels of education and military experience than non-commuters. They also have higher average incomes than non-commuters at every level of education.
