The rising cost of Living: can commuting impact on your health?

This is the seventh in a series of articles commissioned by the Committee for Perth that aims to inform the conversation around the rising costs of living that we are experiencing in Perth and other Australian cities.

Commuting times in Perth are getting longer. If you live in Perth’s outer suburbs you can now expect to spend an hour each way, or more, commuting to work in the CBD. That’s 19 full days every year spent getting to work.

Acknowledgement of Country

The Committee For Perth acknowledges the traditional custodians throughout Western Australia and their continuing connection to the land, waters and community. We pay our respects to all members of the Aboriginal communities and their cultures; and to Elders both past and present.
