Democracy Wiki

Commuters are a voter group.

Commuters are people who have to travel a fair distance from home to work. Commuting is stressful and unpopular; most people don't want to be in this voter group and want their commutes to be as short and easy as possible. Because of this, commuters support public transportation policies and want as little Traffic Congestion as possible.

In Democracy 4, Commuters include anybody traveling some distance to work, whether this is by car, train, bus, monorail or tram. For commuters, transport costs and traffic congestion are hot political issues. Commuters who spend a lot of their time sat in traffic, or are unable to get to work due to strikes will have plenty of time to make their feelings known to politicians.


Commuters can't be retired.


Bus Subsidies and Rail Subsidies will convince more people to commute to work while high unemployment rates and a Telecommuting Initiative will lead to less commuters.

Other Groups[]

Commuters have a rivalry with the more recreational-minded motorists; while commuters favor systems of mass transportation in order to get to and from work quickly and efficiently, motorists opposes buses and train tracks for taking up road space.

Pressure Groups[]

Commuters don't have their own pressure group.
