Commuting Options

Traffic tearing you down? Walk to work! Walking to work can provide some tremendous personal health benefits and creates zero harmful emissions but you also need to stay safe. Review these basic street smarts to stay safe while walking.

If you are unable to walk to work, ask your employer about other working options including:


Working from home or remotely from another site

Flex schedules

Adjusting your schedule to avoid traffic by starting and ending work outside rush hours

Compressed work weeks

Working more hours per day to work fewer days–typically one day off each week or every two weeks

I commute from North Side to Downtown, walking to and from work a few days a week. I usually take the Andy Warhol bridge. It is always so nice to get some fresh air and exercise first thing in the morning, while also helping the environment.
