Example

Commuting is periodically recurring travel between one’s place of residence and place of work or study, where the traveler or peripatetic worker leaves the boundary of their home community. By extension, it can sometimes be any regular or often repeated travel between locations, even when not work-related. The modes of travel, time taken and distance traveled in commuting varies widely across the globe. Most people in least-developed countries continue to walk to work, as the ancestors of all people did until the nineteenth century. The cheapest method of commuting after walking is usually by bicycle, so this is common in low-income countries, but is also increasingly practiced by people in wealthier countries for environmental and health reasons.
