There really is nothing that brings metropolitan dwellers closer together than the daily commute. I spent this morning wedged between a woman furiously texting and a man who spent the whole ride staring at his shoes.

I try not to think about how much money and time this chews up every day, and will chew up every day, for my entire life.
But curiosity got the better of me after Ford – the car company – created a ‘commuter calculator’ that says the average Australian’s commute takes 58 minutes per day and costs them $72,765 over their lifetime.
$72,765. That is an entire person’s salary.
