A Comparison of Particulate Exposure Levels during Taxi, Bus, and Metro Commuting among Four Chinese Megacities

Exposure to inhalable particulate matter pollution is a hazard to human health. Many studies have examined the in-transit particulate matter pollution across multiple travel modes. However, limited

Commuter exposure to particulate matters in four common transportation modes in Nanjing

Exposure to particulate matter and life loss from traveling by four different common commuting modes

Comparing PM exposure among four common transportation modes, analyzing various influencing factors for specific modes, and evaluating public health effects caused by commuting exposure indicated that higher PM exposure was found in cycling, and substituting other modes for cycling could reduce adverse health effects during severely polluted periods.

Commuter exposure to particle-bound polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in Thessaloniki, Greece

Examination of commuter’s exposure to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in the city of Thessaloniki, Greece under three different commuting modes can provide relevant information for transport decision-making and increase environmental awareness for a more rational approach to urban travelling.

Commuters’ Exposure to Particulate Matter Air Pollution Is Affected by Mode of Transport, Fuel Type, and Route

Commuters’ rush hour exposures were significantly influenced by mode of transport, route, and fuel type, with the exception of PM10, which was found that inhaled air pollution doses were lowest for electric bus passengers.
