Why is there a commute tag and a commuter tag and should these two be merged?

I've put a proposal in to merge them.

    I "approved" it, so they're now merged into a single tag. (Also did the thing that replaces the obsoleted tag everywhere)

Isn't it two different things ?

  • Commute : The people who commute to work using a bicycle
  • Commuter : The bike type used to do the commute

    I would read a commuter as the person who commutes. Whereas a commute is the journey itself. I think there is sufficient ambiguity as to which tag to use and the commonality of the content to merge the tags. Commented Sep 2, 2015 at 18:47
