And it is uphill on the way home! Uphill in cold sleet is really no fun whatsoever and I have been known to shout for a bus when it all gets too much
(I get a lift in the morning but his hours and commitments mean he can only pick me up one evening a week)
To be fair if you watch, a lot of the commuters do walk but some people live out in the villages and that is a bit too far. Remember that Stapleford, Waterford, Hertford Heath and then all the towns up the A10 to Buntingford and beyond have no station so they have no choice but to drive to Hertford/Ware etc.
