Thought this was interesting from The Independent.
“The number of workers spending more than an hour travelling to the office has fallen for the first time in a decade, suggesting that “smarter” schemes such as flexi-time were having an effect, new research showed today. A study by the TUC showed a 1% fall between 2006 and 2007 on the number of employees with commuter times of at least an hour. “
Could it be that some of those people have decided there is another way to live and work?
