In a recent poll, we asked our readers how they pass the time during their commute to and from work each day, and with 52% of the votes, “Listening to music/podcasts/audiobooks/etc.” was by far the most popular choice. “Thinking through your day/to-do list” came in second with 14% of the votes, followed by “Talking on the phone” with 12%.
The rest of the results were as follows:
- Enjoy some quiet time – 9%
- Carpool with a friend/coworker – 2%
- Read books/blogs/newspapers/etc. – 1%
- Talk to other people on train/bus/etc. – .5%
Another 9% selected the “Other” option and submitted their own thoughts on the topic, including:
- Checking work emails
- Listening to sports talk
- Taking a nap on the train
- Eyes on the road, hands on the wheel!
