Yet we all know that, while the theory of a co-ordinated public transport system is desirable, the practicality & cost of achieving one will ensure that it never becomes a reality. The maximum acceptable daily commute for most London workers has grown, from 1 hour each way, to a current 2 hours. This equates to over 20 hours per week - an added 50% on a 40 hour working week and costs around £4,000 p.a. from taxed income, for the rail ticket alone. Technological developments have given us the means to work virtually in the country, if not the world, at any time of the day.
A 24/7 society needs 24/7 public services and the only cost effective way and socially acceptable way they can be delivered, is by implementing remote and home working.
