Do you commute long distances to work, leaving early and returning late every day?

Why commute? Is it for family or career reasons, or is it a financial or lifestyle choice?

How do the hours on the road affect your family and social life?

Public transport and population migration figures show that more of the population is on the move as the economy surges back.

Soaring rents and the trickle of new rental properties coming on to the market are also forcing more and more people to move further away from where they work.

We want to hear your story of your commute, why you do it and how affects your life and your relationship with your family and your friends.

Please send an email to commuters@irishtimes.com with your name, contact number and a short description of your commuting life in no more than 300 words that we can publish.

Please attach a photograph of yourself that can run with your story.
