There will always be those who bounce out of bed each morning, eagerly awaiting the challenges and rewards that the new working day holds. But for many, the demands of their jobs are made all the more tiring and difficult thanks to a stressful work commute. The added pressure of the work commute, among several other findings, is at the center of the Australian Commuting Survey, the fifth installment in a series of national studies by Real Insurance.
This particular chapter investigates the habits of, and challenges faced by, those travelling to work by car and on public transport. Fortunately, the report also explores methods used by regular commuters to turn the daily grind into a productive and enjoyable experience that adds to the quality of life, rather than detracting from it, for many Aussies.
