Workplace location and travel effects from teleworking
AbstractTravel time losses in the Netherlands are likely to get worse in the years ahead if capacity is not added to cope with the demand. This particularly creates problems for business travel, which is characterized by a high “value of time”. In the Netherlands, policy makers have a long-standing interest in telework as a means to reduce mobility and consequently the need to expand physical infrastructure. However, currently the knowledge about the influence of teleworking on work activity and physical travel is limited. But in this paper, a framework is given to identify these relationships in-depth, based on a literature review. This results in an approach to measure business and commuting travel patterns of teleworkers.
