subway commute distribution [nice graphics]

An infographics entry in the New York Times about the distribution of a commute between two arbitrary subway stations in New York City, including a comparison of the distribution of a similar (?) commute by Tube in London. Showing that in most cases, the tail is thinner in London than in New York City. (Warning: the comparison may switch scales.)

Here is a bit of an outlier:

given that the two distributions hardly overlap and still share a similar median commute time!
