‘Bikers avoid stress of commuting’
- Credit: supplied
Motorcycles, scooters and mopeds are among the modes of transport least likely to affect your general wellbeing, according to a government travel survey.
The Office for National Statistics released a report this year examining the impact of commuting patterns on people’s levels of anxiety, happiness and satisfaction.
For journeys up to 30 minutes there was no negative effect on levels of happiness or anxiety for those who rode a motorcycle, moped or scooter to work. In contrast, for journeys between 15 and 30 minutes, those who walk, cycle, drive a car or take the bus all experienced an increase in stress or a decrease in happiness.
Motorbike insurer Bennetts is now going one step further to investigate whether commuting by motorcycle or scooter has a positive effect on productivity levels in the workplace.
The company has now launched a short follow-up survey and wants as many commuters as possible to share their opinions – good or bad – on their daily commute.
