Have you ever worked out much time you spend commuting each year? The average it seems is five weeks a year. That’s based on research by the TUC on official figures from the Office for National Statistics. People working in London have the longest commuting time with the average worker taking 277 hours a year travelling to and from work, that’s about 37.8 minutes per journey. Those in the East of England and the South East have average commuting times of 205 hours a year with workers in Northern Ireland and Wales having the shortest commutes of 164 hours and 166 hours. I would also  be interested to see the average amount of time workers waste being delayed by late running and cancelled transport particularly during the winter months when in some areas the transport system seems to break down completely.
