Bengalureans spend 7% of lifetime commuting: study

Most Bengaluru residents spend 7% of their entire life commuting between office and home.

This would likely increase to more alarming levels if the city's traffic woes are not effectively dealt with.

A study by Move In Sync - a city-based firm that
helps corporate companies manage their employee transportation- also reveals that the average commuting distance in the city is 16.8 kilometres and the one-way trip takes 47 minutes.

"People on average spend 1.34 hours on the road each day," Move In Sync co-founder and CEO Deepesh Agarwal said.


After strenuous data collection on traffic congestion between February and June, the organisation chose 11 areas.

"Our analysis showed that Bannerghatta Road, Domlur Embassy Golf Links area, Ecoworld, Electronics City, Bellandur, Doddanekkundi, Manyata Tech Park, Prestige Tech Park in Sarjapur, Yeshwantpur WTC and Whitefield witness heavy traffic congestion," Agarwal said.

Those working in companies around Sarjapur Road and Outer Ring Road's Prestige Techpark spend about
43 minutes for two-way travel, the lowest when compared to other areas.

Similarly, employees in companies at Techpark on ORR and Doddanekkundi spend more time on Sundays.

"Those travelling to Manyata Tech Park, EJL in Domlur and Yeshwantpur WTC spend the same amount of time all days," he said.
