New Yorkers have the longest commute in the nation.

That's according to a report released Tuesday by the Partnership for New York City.

It says New Yorkers on average spend 48 minutes getting to work.

According to the Daily News, that's 13 minutes longer than the national average.

The report by the nonprofit partnership urged the city to increase its public transportation options.

It says more than half of commuters between Brooklyn and Queens have to drive because of "limited" public transit options.
