Getting to and from work takes Greeks longer than EU average

Greeks spend almost 50 minutes a day commuting to and from work, slightly above the European average, according to a new survey.

It takes Greeks 49 minutes and 40 seconds to commute on average each day, whereas the average in 12 European countries surveyed as part of the Samsung Mobile Europe study was 45 minutes.

Almost 60 percent of Greeks use their cars to get to work, the survey indicated.
