Автомобиль из средства передвижения все больше превращается в роскошь

Moreover, the unnecessary luxury, if to judge according to the study, according to which the proportion of our fellow citizens use for travel to and from work private transport, and in 2014 has declined and continues to decline steadily in almost all Russian cities. And if that doesn’t tell you who continue to stand in traffic jams the streets, it is only because of the still excessive number of cars on them.

Two thirds (67%) of residents of Moscow and about 56% in St. Petersburg get to work by public transport – it is reported RIA Novosti with reference to the service job SuperJob, which conducted the study.

The least time traveling to work on public transport, the study found, spending by residents of the Russian “car capitals” of Tolyatti and Ulyanovsk (on average 35 and 37 minutes). And faster than my car coming to work the residents of Sochi and Tolyatti again (23 and 25 minutes, respectively), which, therefore, all is well with public and private transport.

For Muscovite, the ultimate dream is to get to work for at least 27 minutes. But in reality, the route by public transport takes over an hour. The perfect time for the St. Petersburg — 24 minutes, in fact – just under an hour. Residents of Krasnoyarsk and Khabarovsk believe that the way to work it is necessary to spend no more than 15 minutes daily.
