For the majority of people who don’t work from home, commuting is an integral part of life. Every morning and every evening, people get into cars, buses or trains, and make their way to and from work.
If you add up the time spent commuting to and from work, you’ll probably work out that it’s at least 10% of your day. In fact, 80 million Americans commute for over 40 minutes every day, and the average American worker will spend the equivalent of 19 full work days traveling to work. If you’re in the New York-Newark-Jersey City metro area, you have one of the longest commutes in the entire country.
Considering that this time could be better spent enjoying breakfast with your kids in the morning, grabbing dinner with friends in the evening, or actually doing your job, the issue of commuting has become an extremely important one for millions of Americans.
The current state of commuting
For those that take their cars to work, commuting means wasted time, fuel and energy. You jump in your car only to be stuck in traffic and wishing you were anywhere else. On top of this, there’s also the fuel you burn going to and from work every day, which adds up extremely quickly. Not to mention the cost of parking once you actually get to work.
Commuting is even worse for people that use current public transportation options. Simply ask anyone traveling from the suburbs to the city every day, in the blistering heat or ice cold temperatures. Long waits, delays, buses that don’t show up on time, traffic and old infrastructure. It’s a nightmare, yet this is how millions of people start and end their day, every day.
