Hi dear experts. Could you paraphrase the following sentences:
1. The average commuter spends at least two hours a day on a train, whilst even a small walk to the village shop constituents a journey.
2. Recently the taxi-bus has been introduced, and cities such as Oxford have been declared fully Park and Ride zones.
while (the sound of whilst rubs me up the wrong way)
Cambridge Dictionaries Online - Cambridge University Press
constitutes/amounts to a journey
Despite the recent introduction of taxi buses, cities like Oxford, increasingly set up park and ride zones.
