Williamson County’s population and labor force continue to grow, and so does the number of commuters driving in and out of the county to their place of work.
Currently, over 28,000 Williamson County residents commute to Davidson County and nearly 27,000 Davidson County residents drive into Williamson County for work. The numbers in the regional map, below, represent the percentage of workforce that lives in one county and commutes to another. On average, commute time in the Nashville region is 27 minutes.
As jobs and population continue to grow, it will be increasingly important for the community and business leaders to address transportation funding and improve transit options.
