Working from home, commuting and transport policy

Understanding Society is a longitudinal survey. Every year we ask each member of thousands of the same households across the UK about key areas of their life.

In each episode of this series we’re exploring how our data has been used in a key area. We’ll look at what we found, what it tells us and what we can learn from it.  

In this episode we’re looking at the tension between commuting and working from home – and how the two combined have affected and should continue to affect transport policy moving forward.

Here to discuss this are Dr Daniel Wheatley from the Department of Management at the University of Birmingham, Dr Kiron Chatterjee, Professor of Travel Behaviour at the University of the West of England and Pete Dyson, Principal Behavioural Scientist at the Department for Transport.
