A new study from Regus Canada finds Canadians are spending 4% of their salary towards their commute, up 3% from last year.
Whether its commuting to work, school or just getting around the city, it seems that these costs are just something Canadians are going to have to work around. Mandatory expenses such as these should much rather be considered as a hidden gridlock tax.
Increasing Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) fares each year is also not helping Torontonians. The study further revealed that residents are finding it difficult to use their earnings towards other expenses.
With a monthly cost of $141.50 for a metro pass and the average Canadian making around $27, 000 – it’s easy to see how commuting is bound to make a hole in their paychecks.
