My commute in Rio. A lot of bridges/tunnels and jams! Usually takes me 40-50 min.

But sometimes I realize it´s not all bad to be stucked in a traffic jam over a double-deck road...

My commute from Amsterdam to Rotterdam is about 80km and takes 1h20 by bike and train.

First I bike to Amsterdam-Zuid station (2,8 km - 15 min).


From there I take a train to Schiphol Airport (7 mins) and change to a different train to Rotterdam Central (41 mins) (53 min including wait/change time, 75km):


In Rotterdam I get on another bike and bike to my office (1,8 km - 10 min):

Probably better than taking the car. The A4 can be pretty jammed. (especially when an accident happens on the A12, which is daily).

Here's my commute for each time I go to school (Belgium):

Use my bike to go to the nearest train station. (about 5 minutes - 1360 m)
Take the commuter train to Mechelen. (4 minutes - 5 km)
Switch trains to the InterCity train towards Antwerp. (about 21 minutes - 23.4 km)
Take the premetro towards "Linkeroever" until Station Groenplaats. (about 5 minutes - 1400 m)

An alternative for me is taking the bus to Mechelen, which takes me about 3 minutes walking and 8 minutes on the bus.

When displayed on an image, it looks like this:

Yellow: bike
Red: Train
Green: Premetro (actually just an underground tram)

When considering the added waiting times it usually turns into a total of about an hour.

Katowice: Millenium Settlement->downtown, aprox. 6 kilometers (same way back home) - it takes me 15 minutes, half of that on foot (red line)




Home:


These streets I take by car - usually no t-jams (one of the best things about my city) so I do 80-120 km/h














I leave my car in this area (no parking fee zone)...


...and take a short walk through this square...


...to work by this street:


Good tram connection, quite nice walk possible, but I'm wheels enthusiasts and so I always go by car or if there's nice weather on bicycle. Enthusiast but also poor student, so I drive this

Well - at least it's cheap to run (LPG converted), reliable (good job korean friends) and nobody would steal it (rubbish)

I see only two “Syrena” („mermaid”) cars on this shot (red dots). Three other (yellow dots) are “Warszawa” cars:






Plus we got here one “Polski Fiat 125p” (black dot):



(I used to own one of these, built in 1968 and I really miss it)

and some commercial vehicles:
“Żuk” (“beetle”, blue dot)


2 x „Nysa” (green)


2 x Star 29 (grey)


Jelcz 315 (pink)


Plus a car and a truck I don’t recognize and two legendary imports – VW Garbus (“hunchback” – that’s how we call VW Bettle, white dot) and Trabant P601 (called “Honecker’s revenge” , pink dot)

This photo was taken in early 70s – now this place looks different. Traffic lights, moved tracks, additional lanes, tunnel instead of cross-walks etc. Shot was found in SSC thread and together with 100s of other photos can bee seen in international photo-thread about Katowice in my signature. I invite

P.S.: Sorry for OT

I'm going to school by bike. It's 16 km ( 60 minutes ) and I have to wake up 6 o'clock AM. That's the thing I don't like. But when it's rainy I'm going by bus what takes 30 minutes.
