Commuting is beyond the grinding drive to work or school. Commuting is the journey, not the drive. Last year, researchers estimated that area commuters each spend $1,376 and waste 31 gallons of fuel a year sitting in traffic. And traffic is projected to increase by 61% by 2045.
Finding alternative modes of transportation is not just important to our health, but also our planet’s. We must find better ways to commute.
September is Commute Solutions Month, and this month we challenge you to attend one of our virtual fairs to learn more about alternate forms of commuting, such as biking, walking, public transportation, carpooling, or vanpooling. These alternate modes of transportation have been proven to reduce stress, improve mental and physical health, reduce overall energy consumption, and save money!
