Taking The A-Train

So you got a job in the big city.  Great work!  Now, how long will it take to get to your new gig?

Average one-way work commute times, in minutes, for some major metropolitan centers around the world:

London – 77 minutes

Tokyo – 66 minutes

New York City – 48 minutes

Hong Kong – 30 minutes

Singapore – 28 minutes

Phoenix, Arizona – 26 minutes

Note that the commute is spent on a train/subway in most of these cities.

Regarding Tokyo:  You can find some interesting blogs and photos covering the “Tokyo Compression”.  Google it.  Wild stuff.  Maybe ride a bike in Tokyo.
