There are several ways to considerably cut down on commuting costs:


Share rides with friends or family that work in the same area, or suggest a carpooling system to your co-workers. Carpooling can significantly lower your carbon footprint, save wear and tear on your car, and help to cut down on your fuel and commute expenses.

Ask your employer about flexible scheduling options

Depending on your line of work, it may be possible to telecommute part-time or even full-time. Ask your employer if they are willing to let you work from a virtual office, even if just one day a week. If telecommuting is out of the question, but flexible shifts and schedules are, try to change your hours so that your workday either begins or ends after peak travel times. If you can avoid sitting in heavy traffic twice daily, five days a week, you’ll save both time and money.
