Using compressed workweeks to reduce work commuting
The idea that compressed workweeks can reduce work commuting is not new, but little has been written on the subject from the transportation perspective. This paper elaborates on compressed workweeks and points out that they can lead to massive reduction in work commuting. We present several real-world cases to demonstrate the amount of commuting reduction made possible by compressed workweeks. We also discuss several related issues, including employee and employer acceptance and effect on carpooling.
