How is the 3:30pm rush hour "new" and how is it a "pre-"rush hour when the "standard" rush hour lasts from 3pm to 7pm? -- Greg K Nicholson 9 July 2005 01:44 (UTC)
I am a native born english person and I have never heard of it described as 'peak hour' everyone calls it rush hour. We do refer to peak time and trains cost different prices depending if it is on or off peak time. However i have never heard the phrase 'peak hour' we use the term rush hour. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 18:02, 23 March 2016 (UTC) further evidence is the fact that if you google 'peak hour' no meainingful results appear apart from this article. The oxford dictionary contains the phrase peak hour but gives examples related to electricity and gas usage and does not mention it as referring to rush hour.
- Seconded- native British English speaker, lived in various parts of UK, and I've never heard the term. You hear "peak" (usually before 9am) and "off-peak" for trains and buses, and I've seen the phrase "peak time congestion" used in traffic reports. But there is no "peak hour".Walshie79 (talk) 19:38, 30 March 2016 (UTC)
I don't think that is relevant.
And if it is, then we should probably include more countries when talking about transportation discounts.
- I copied the info to Transportation in the Netherlands. Nevertheless, a comparison on this or a new page of off-peak travel discounts in various countries would be interesting.--Patrick 02:34, 2 March 2006 (UTC)
- I agree, it's silly to include such detailed information for one single country. Unless a meaningful comparison can be made between several different countries, it should be removed. --188.8.131.52 06:39, 10 March 2006 (UTC)
Requesting a page
- You should add that at Wikipedia:Requested Articles. Anyhow, i'll do it for you. Is "zheliel" me? 18:08, 15 January 2009 (UTC)
Currently the article is stating "Typically, rush hour lasts from 6-10 am (0600-1000) and from 3-7 pm (1500-1900) local time. With people travelling places during their lunch time by car too, it is arguable that noon till 2pm (1400) is another, less frantic, rush hour." At the very least this needs cited, but it appears the times are a bit off for the Central Time Zone. For St Louis, Nashville, and Memphis the morning rushour is already winding down by 8 AM and over before 9, the lunch rush hour stats at 11:30 AM and is over by 1:00 PM and the evening hour is winding down at 5:30 PM and over by 6 PM.

- It's hard to give good typical times as they vary from country to country too. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 12:11, 16 January 2008 (UTC)
Third Rush Hour
In many European countries (e.g. Germany, Austria, Hungary) the schools are only half-day and many people work only half-time too (exspecially women). This way a third rush hour occures between around 12:30 and 14:00. It takes some load from the evening rush hour and makes the morning rush hour the most intense time of the day. Perhaps this fact should be mentioned in the article too (of course in some better English than mine ;-) ) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 21:42, 15 September 2009 (UTC)
