UK workers are spending an extra 18 hours a year commuting to work compared with a decade ago, the TUC has found.
Getting to and from work now takes five minutes longer than it did in 2008 – with drivers spending 52 minutes on the road to work and back (up by three minutes), and bus commuters setting aside 79 minutes a day (up by seven minutes). However, rail commuters face the longest journeys, taking an average of two hours and 11 minutes every day – an increase of four minutes on the last decade.
