    The use of "would" in the sentence

    I used to live here and would travel into district 1 to work every morning passing new developments on each side of the road all the way into the city.

    Could you explain why we used "would" here?

    "I would travel" indicates habitual action.

    Re: The use of "would" in the sentence

    Thank you,
    Can you tell me more about this? Maybe a link or something relating to the use of "would" for this case.
    I cannot find the use in my grammar books and on the net.

    P.S I have just found the usage here:

    It is new to me. Thank you again for help!
