Commuting to work and school is a big part of many people’s lives, and as an experience, it varies from one country to another. Undoubtedly, in some countries, it is pretty plain sailing, while in others, it could use some improvement.
According to a recent study carried out by UK based company Uswitch, we now know which countries are best for commuting, and which are the ones that aren’t as great.
In their findings, Malta ended up ranking seventh out of all the countries around the globe, but this may come as a surprise to many find everyday commuting in Malta quite difficult.
The factors considered in the survey included the time spent to get to your place of work or school, as well as the cost of doing so.
Environmental measures were also taken into consideration. These included the number of electric modes of transport being used and the charging points found along the way. Additionally, the amount of Carbon Dioxide used per individual was also calculated.
Malta was found to spend around $1.56 per litre on fuel and only emits three tonnes of carbon dioxide per individual, which contributed to making it part of the top ten countries in the world for commuting.
