Compressed Work Weeks/Flextime
If you can't change how you get to work, change when you get to work.
If you have flexible hours, adjusting the time you get to work can vastly improve your commute. By driving during off-peak times, you can avoid sitting in traffic, emitting vehicle pollution from idling, and get to work a whole lot faster. Some example schedules include:
- Work 40 hours over four days instead of the usual five, or work 80 hours in two weeks but only work 9 out of 10 days.
- Set a new schedule to avoid the 7-9 morning rush and the 5-7 evening rush. Maybe try a 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. schedule a couple days a week.
