On a scale of one to ten, how do you rate your commute? If you’re like most full-time commuters, you spend nearly five hours per week traveling to and from work, according to the U.S. Census.
Over 147 million workers battle daily traffic and congestion. For at least 25% of commuters, travel time takes 35 minutes or more to reach their places of employment. A study from the National Center for Biotechnology Information links sedentary behaviors, like commuting, with chronic stress, high blood pressure, tension, fatigue, and higher BMI.
Public transportation is ten times safer than driving a vehicle while lessening our carbon footprint. Reliable access to public transportation might eliminate the need to own a vehicle, saving over $10,000 per year, according to the Federal Highway Administration.
While some commuters thrive on public transportation, others prefer the scheduling convenience of driving their own vehicle to and from work. There is freedom in choosing when to travel instead of being subject to the transit schedule. Commuters can enjoy the quiet of their own car instead of the bustle of fellow travelers eager to get to their destinations.
