Travelling By Motorcycle The Least Likely Mode Of Transport To Affect Well-Being?

iStock_000006707782SmallAccording to a government travel survey, travelling to work on a motorcycle, scooter or moped is one of the least likely modes of transport to affect your well-being.

The Office for National Statistics released a report this week examining the impact of commuting patterns on people’s levels of anxiety, happiness and satisfaction.

For journeys up to 30 minutes there was no effect on levels of happiness or anxiety for those who rode a motorcycle, moped or scooters to work. In contrast – for journeys between 15 and 30 minutes – those who walk, cycle, drive a car or take the bus – all experience an adverse increase in some, or all, of the factors measured.
