Teleworking to avoid traffic congestion?
For the first time, state data shows teleworking has surpassed all alternatives to solo driving here as a main commute — including carpooling and mass transit, AJC writer Ariel Hart reports.
Last year, 7 percent of all metro Atlanta commuters teleworked for the majority of their commutes — up significantly from 4 percent in 2007, Hart writes.
But, Atlanta’s heart still belongs to the car, with 82 percent of commuters driving alone, Hart reports. But that’s down slightly from 2007, when the state’s last survey said 85 percent drove alone.
Where does your heart belong? Are you changing your affections? Why or why not?
Is your employer allowing more employees to telework or is he or she resisting?
