High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Many large cities or conurbations are surrounded by commuter belts, also known as metropolitan areas, commuter towns, dormitory towns, or bedroom communities Commuting is regular travel between one' s place of residence and place of work or full time study. Institutions that have few dormitories or near-campus student housing are called commuter schools in the United States. Before the 19th century most workers lived less than an hour' s walk from their work. Commuting has had a large impact on modern life. It has allowed cities to grow to sizes which were previously not practical, and it has led to the proliferation of suburbs. Today, many people travel daily to work a long way from their own towns, cities and villages— especially in industrialised societies that can use modes of travel such as automobiles, motorcycles, trains, buses and bicycles;— sometimes by choice, sometimes when forced to do so by the high cost of housing in city centres or because of traffic congestion.
