1. ‘Tis the Season! Top 3 Ways to Enjoy a Cheerier Holiday Commute
Visiting Grandma this holiday season or shopping for gifts? This time of year brings an influx of travelers from all over the Southeast to metro Atlanta, potentially adding time to commutes, no matter what time or day. According to a 2016 report by AAA, more than 103 million Americans were expected to travel at the holidays, a 1.5 percent increase from 2015. These numbers could increase again this year.
Here are three ways you can reduce time spent on the roads during your commute this season:
1. Use flextime – If you can’t change how you get to work, change when you get to work. By driving during off-peak times, you avoid sitting in traffic and get to work faster.
2. Try teleworking – Avoid traffic completely by working from home occasionally. Bonus: You’ll save money on gas to put towards your holiday shopping!
3. Consider a transit option - Metro Atlanta has a number of transit options available for commuters. Transit riders save time, help reduce vehicle emissions, and, when someone else is doing the driving, you can spend your commute finding that perfect holiday dessert recipe.
