The 5 most EXTREME commutes in the world

The 5 most EXTREME commutes in the world

Waking up this morning you’ll undoubtedly have felt tired, maybe even a touch reluctant to rise from your bed, don your workwear and head out of the door.

The average commuter will spend over a year getting to and from work, so it’s only natural that frustration and resentment will seep into some journeys.

Over half surveyed were miffed at long traffic jams, and a quarter were annoyed by the constant delays in public transport, as well as the cost.

The average cost of a commute comes in at £82 a month, with Londoners paying the most - £116 a month.

Research carried out by One Poll, on behalf of Get Living London, found that the average British traveller spends one year and 35 days commuting – at a cost of approximately £42,000.

Nearly half (47%) were unwilling to work too far from their homes, with anything over 48 minutes being too far. 21% have turned down a job offer because the workplace was too distant.

And yet, maybe we’re all being a touch too despondent? If the thought of getting on a train each morning makes you feel sick, imagine having to scale a rock face, brave the arctic wilderness or shimmy across a handcrafted rope bridge.

We’ve found the five most uncomfortable, worryingly dangerous and all-round nauseating commutes that employees from across the world have to endure each day. You never know, they may make you feel better about that trek into Kings Cross.
