Net Compensation per hour factoring in commute time and cost
What is the net compensation per hour, when factoring commute time and subtracting the cost of different commutes?
Commute time by distance and mode
How does each commuting method compare over a variety of different commuting distances? Walking is practical up to 2 km, bicycle up to 5km, and electric-bicycle up to 10km.
Cost of commute (time only)
How much does the commute cost when the time is priced at a wage of $11/hour?
Cost of commute (mode only)
How much does each commute cost, excluding the lost time?
Time saved vs walking
How much time is saved on each of these commutes compared to walking?
For each commute type, how much wealth leaves the city?
For each commute type, how dependent is it on external resources imported into the city? Assuming the city produces no oil, makes no vehicles or vehicle parts these items must all be imported into the city. The value of labour is not imported and is not included in these figures below.
If a city has 100,000 people and a working population ratio of 52%, there are 52,000 jobs. Let’s calculate the imported value of these commutes based on average commute modes and distances in the USA. (mode breakdown)(distance factor)
