Southern California commuting ranked as nation’s most stressful

For example, Washington, D.C. — known for its extensive mass transit network — had the longest commute at 60.4 minutes but was only eighth-most stressful. San Francisco ranked No. 2 for time (59.2 minutes), but its BART system helped lower the city to No. 5 for stress. And subway-loving New York was No. 4 in lengthy commutes (57.9 minutes) but only ninth-most stressful.

Globally, Southern California also ranked poorly in a study of commutation costs — for workers, society and the environment — by Arcadis, a Dutch engineering consultancy. Among 100 big cities around the globe, New York was the nation’s best — but only ranked No. 23 in the world. San Francisco was 26th; D.C. was 42nd; San Diego 65th and Los Angeles 72nd.

“Traffic congestion is one of the biggest day-to-day challenges for Los Angeles’s residents, with the average person spending 104 hours stuck in traffic each year,” Arcadis noted.

Bad commutes are bad for business. A recently released study of British workers found a stunning cost of a longer trip to the workplace: Adding 20 minutes of daily commuting hit job satisfaction as hard as a 19 percent cut in a worker’s pay.

One of the best cures for the commutation blues is walking or bicycling to work, the British study found.

It would be stress free if people could mount M134 on their bumpers like a FREE! country would.
