Car drivers are apparently significantly more stressed on their commute than those that use other means of transport, as observed in this study in Montreal. Having to budget more time for their commute and the unpleasantness of the journey contributed to unhappy commuters.

Would commuting drivers switch to public transport if they had better access to it?
