Sorry for misleading information. 2 hours is car commute or commute on public transport from neighbouring cities, not Moscow. If living in Moscow near to the metro station, metro commute can often take only 30-40 minutes. So, 51 minute average for all types of transportation is relatively accurate

Hour commute is for the rich / IT specialists. Average person commutes at least for 2 hours
