How does your commute compare to the UK average?

How does your commute compare to the UK average? Easy peasy!

We’ve calculated that you don’t have to travel to work, you lucky so and so.

The average person in the UK spends the equivalent of 6 working weeks commuting… That’s like travelling 7.5 hours a day, 5 days a week for a month and a half! By not travelling to work, you’re saving time, money, mileage and CO2… Well done!

You spend around 0 hours commuting each year, which is 100% lower than the UK average!

You spend: 0 hours per year commuting to and from work.

Just think about what you could do with that sort of time...

0 days off work
0 rocket trips to the moon
0 extra hours in bed

You travel: 0 miles per year commuting to and from work.

Just think about what else you could do with that kind of mileage. That’s the same as...

0 hikes up and down Snowdon
0 bicycle rides around the Isle of Man
0 completed marathons

You spend: Nothing on commuting to and from work

Great job!

You create: Zero tonnes of CO2 per year, commuting to and from work.

Green hero!

The planet thanks you for not contributing any CO2 through your work commute.

What if everyone could walk to work?

It’s easy to take the humble walk for granted. But walking has a profound effect on our health, our mental well-being, our relationships, the economy, the environment and our understanding of what really matters to us. It’s funny, we call people who walk “pedestrian” but the truth is that people who walk change the world in lots of profound and beneficial ways. What’s more, it’s easy to do and doesn’t cost a thing.

Research says that during the lockdown in June 2020, nearly half of the entire UK population was working from home. That’s millions of people not having to commute to and work in an office. As restrictions ease, this will become their new normal, and many of them will be looking for closer to home working alternatives.

TownSq creates local hubs where people can walk to work with all the benefits that includes, both for the individual and the local community. We’re also a B Corp, a global movement to use business as a force for good. By creating positive working environments closer to where people live, we hope to encourage more walking to work, as and when people find it more pleasurable and convenient.

Before lockdown, over 30 million people in the UK commuted to work every day. We see this as 30 million ways to change the way we get to work for the better.
