PHILADELPHIA—Philadelphia is known as the City of Brotherly Love. But if road rage is going to manifest on the streets of a major city, Philadelphia may be among the top candidates. That’s because of the horrible traffic in Philadelphia. So if you want to escape the congestion, you might opt for a virtual office.

The annual commuter delay in Philadelphia is 48 hours a year. In other words, if you are a daily Philadelphia commuter, you are wasting away two full days of your life trying to get to and from work. Two days of your life!

How does Philadelphia compare to other major cities on the traffic front? Philadelphia is the ninth most congested city, according to the Texas A&M Transportation Institute’s study of worst commute times.

Chicago and Atlanta are tied at seventh. Boston ranks fifth with 53 hours. Houston ranks fourth with 52 hours. Meanwhile, New York and Newark come in third to Washington, D.C. and the San Francisco-Oakland area on the list. Washington has the worst commute times in the United States with a whopping 67 hours.

Alliance Virtual Offices offers virtual office space in Philadelphia so you can spend your time more productively. Alliance offers Philadelphia virtual office at Penn Center Serviced Offices. Located at Two Penn Center, this virtual office space starts at $230 a month.
