According to 2009 data from the U.S. Government, the average daily work commute is 25.1 minutes (one-way). Personally, while my commute is just under 20 miles one-way it can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour or more depending on traffic.
If you’re unable to telecommute or work within walking or biking distance from your home, consider carpooling.
Many metro areas have a variety of services available for residents to make the most of their commute and help take a few more cars off the road. Your company may also have services available to help match you with co-workers living in the same areas as you.
And depending on where you live, you may be able to cut your commute time drastically by taking advantage of high-occupancy-lanes.
Do you carpool? Would you consider it?
