In Europe, Brits have the longest commute to work with many people spending beyond two hours a day on buses and trains, a recent study shows. According to the said survey, Birmingham is the capital of Europe for the longest travel to work time with almost four out of ten individuals commuting for two hours daily.

Mirror reported that the survey was conducted by Moovit transport app, where movements of 50 million people were tracked in 47 countries around the globe. The study shows that commuters in Birmingham travel on average for 94 minutes daily; next to it is Manchester at 89 minutes and closely followed by Londoners at 84 minutes.

By comparison, commuters in Madrid and Berlin enjoy an extra half an hour every weekday with total times of 62 minutes total travel every weekday - 30 minutes less in total than that of Birmingham. That is closely followed by the average 64 minutes daily commute of Parisians, while Barcelona enjoying one of the lowest travel times at 50 minutes every weekday.

Manchester commuters have daily commuting times that are similar to travelers in New York, which averaged 87 minutes every weekday. Singapore's travel time, on the other hand, mirrored those of London at 84 minutes.

So far, Britain got the highest percentage of commute times over two hours (30 percent in London, 31 percent in Manchester and 38 percent in Birmingham) of trips that takes over two hours long, Scoop Nest reported. That is more than twice the amount of extreme travels in other European cities including Madrid (15 percent), Paris (15 percent), Berlin (14 percent) and Milan (14 percent). The data shows that when it comes to waits at stops, UK cities suffer from the highest percentage of over 20 minutes. Manchester tops the list with a staggering 28 percent of travelers waiting for more than 20 minutes at stops during their commute.
