It's been shown many times in MMR's posts how big an impact commuting distance can have on your wealth.

I wanted a little more precision on this, as it's a super important insight. I've calculated the time taken to use each transport mode (walk, bike, e-bike, bus, car), plus the cost of that mode for commutes of 1km, 3km, 5km, 10km, 15km, 20km, 30km, 45km, 55km, 65km.

Factoring in commute time and cost of running a vehicle, somebody on $11/hour is only taking home $6/hour if they drive to work 20 miles each way. Obviously the lower the salary, the bigger the commute cost takes a bite out of it.

To see effect on an $11/hour worker go here

It would then calculate what your effective take home pay would be per hour, once you factor in commute time and cost.

Feedback welcome, I'm sure this can be improved! :)
