I am wondering about the health effect of accepting a job that is a 40 minute car ride + 2.5 hours train ride away from me.
Research suggests that train rides are healthier than car rides. I live 40 minutes drive away from a train station. Then the train takes 2.5 hours to get to NYC. The seats are large and comfortable and the train is nicer than your average commuter train.
If I need to drive 40 minutes on a highway (not congested) to get to a train station early in the morning, does that negate the benefits of commuting by train?
I am personally excited about the train and do not worry about the very long train ride. I could read books and enjoy myself on a pleasant train ride even though it is a very unusual commute. My worry is more about the 40 minute car ride early in the morning 5am to the train station.
