Social networking for commuters

If you commute to work by commuter bus, train or any public transit, you could be connecting with other passengers by making contact on Twitter and always using the hashtag #commutee. What is a hashtag?

We have members from commuter towns around London, New York, New Orleans, Kuala Lumpur, Sydney, Thailand and Hong Kong. They all have very different commutes but there's something in their journeys that every commuter will relate to.

Tyler describes his commute on London's DLR train to the heart of London's shopping district. Harveena tells us about her commute on the Kelana Jaya Light Rail Transit to Kuala Lumpur. Rhys' journey to work takes him along London's River Thames to historic Greenwich.

Harry's commuter bus from Ottawa takes him past dramatic wildlife scenes - a far cry from Nor's public transport commute in Malaysia. Gang Huang's depiction of Hong Kong gives commuters another contrasting journey to work.

Ye Hsia's daily commute in Australia takes him across Sydney Harbour Bridge, and Arthur's journey on the New York Subway is one that many Londoners would recognise. Chelsea prefers the overground when she travels from her home in Wimbledon but Tegan explains that in Edmonton, public transportation always means the bus.

Many of our members use the river on their daily journey - Louis' trip by ferry in Sydney is a relaxing pleasure trip, compared to being cramped undergound on a subway train. Jennifer explains what it's like commuting on London's Tube network between Islington and Docklands.

Central Line – Liverpool St to Tottenham Court Rd

I’ve got a bag today, which seems strange. Must remember it when I get off the Tube. Quiet platform at Liverpool St – train pulls up quickly. I manage to sneak into my favourite place, standing by the glass panel at the end of the seats so I don’t have to hold on to the handrail. Makes it easier to type, less chance of catching something,... [Read more of this review]

Colchester to London

The 08:37 ’slow train’ pulls up and leaves on time. It’s half empty, probably because of the last 2 days of strikes. Beautiful day today as we fly through the Essex countryside. Woman puts on her makeup with a Metro on her knee. Catch up on with email and Twitter. Zone out until I notice the sunny countryside views outside. Post a pic on Twitter.... [Read more of this review]
