THE BRONX - Traveling to and from The Bronx is on the rise, making it the largest reverse commute market in the United States.

According to the MTA, more people are traveling from Metro-North stations in the borough to areas in Westchester County and Connecticut every morning for work. It says the commuter numbers have grown 150 percent since 1990.

Officials say more employment opportunities in northern areas are what's driving the numbers up.
