Who are the happiest commuters?


Travelling to work on a motorcycle, scooter or moped is one of the least likely modes of transport to affect your well being, according to a government travel survey. 

The Office for National Statistics released a report last week examining the impact of commuting patterns on people’s levels of anxiety, happiness and satisfaction. 

For journeys up to 30 minutes there was no effect on levels of happiness or anxiety for those who rode a motorcycle, moped or scooters to work. In contrast – for journeys between 15 and 30 minutes - those who walk, cycle, drive a car or take the bus – all experience an adverse increase in some or all of the factors measured.
