Men spend more time on their daily commute

More than a quarter of all journeys made by men aged 17-59, and just less than one-fifth of all trips made by women of the same age, are for commuting to and from work.

A national travel survey by the Department for Transport shows that men’s journeys take an average of 28 minutes, compared with 22 minutes for women.

One reason for this is that men travel further to work than women do, with an average of 16.6 kilometres, compared with 9.7 kilometres for women.

People in Wales are most likely to go to work by car or van (70 per cent), while those in London were least likely (36 per cent).
