The Daily Trek - 14 Images of Commuters the World Over

Themed Collections

07 September 2017

Posted by Cecily Eltringham

What comes to mind when you hear the phrase ‘daily commute. Traffic jams that make your veins pop? Dinging bells on packed buses? Maybe an underground journey where armpits are unavoidable and seats are like gold dust. On average, Britons spend around an hour and a half travelling to and from work every day, which works out as nearly 16 full days in a year. Now take a second to imagine that those 16 days are spent on the back of an elephant. Every culture around the world has its own version of the daily commute, and it may feel slightly odd to consider that that depressingly mundane journey that you take every day, be it a train, a donkey, or a canoe, might actually be another person’s exotic adventure.  Here we’ve collected a fascinating series of photos of commuters around the world, so next time you’re stuck on transport you can transport yourself to another world instead.
