But one sharp Tweeter has noted that Carney's pay package includes a paid for chauffeur (as well as other extras, private health and dental insurance are included):

Carney may have left a good impression on his first day, but it looks like this may be an exception. He's the first foreign national to ever take the top job at the central bank, and will be keen to show from the off that he'll be able to rise to the demands of the role.
Not only did Mark Carney get the tube into work, he is in the office on Canada Day, technically a public holiday in his home country— Ed Conway (@EdConwaySky) July 1, 2013
