Infographic: Crazy ways Australians get to work

19 Jun 2014, by Informa Insights

If you drive to work and wonder why you are always stuck in traffic, you will be “pleased” to know that you are sharing the road with 13.3 million passenger vehicles… Almost 2 in 3 Australian commuters get to work by private car with just 1 in 10 replying on public transport.

There are many ways to avoid the traffic congestion.  Sydney has as many people who get to work by train as the rest of Australia combined, Melbourne has more bicycle commuters than any other city in Australia, and the Northern Territory is Australia’s “walk to work” capital with 11% of all workers getting to work by foot.

The below infographic created by Social Researcher shows exactly how Australians get to work – Did you know that more Sydneysiders get to work by truck than by bicycle?  Well, we didn’t know either.


How do you get to work? Tell us in the comment section below, we’d love to hear from you!
