Commuting Chaos: How Is It Changing Us?

Commuting is an activity that most people in cities around the world are familiar with. The daily journeys to and from work are described as a type of “hell” or “nightmare”. Stuck in traffic, cramped on a bus or in a train, it’s come to epitomise what we loath most about the 21st century working culture and the routine nature of our lives. However how is this seemingly benign activity changing us? David Bissell, Associate Professor and Australian Research Council Future Fellow at the University of Melbourne, joined Drive on the line to talk about what lies underneath the daily commute. For more information on the ways that everyday life in the city is defined by commuting you can check out David’s book Transit Life here:
