The Worst Commutes in the World

Updated: January 13, 2011

The morning and evening commute happens every weekday during rush hour, Monday-Friday, all around the world. Some people live in rural areas, and have a simple distance to traverse before their arrival at work. Some live in the suburbs, and have to fight grueling traffic jams into metropolitan cities. People that live inside metropolitan cities have to grind away at trying to hail a cab, or fight their way through too cold subway stations/too hot subway cars, packing themselves in like sardines. This is all just in first world countries such as The United States, Europe, and Japan. Just imagine what people do that live in less fortunate societies? Here is a look at the commutes in the world.
