New Year, New Commute!

A new year often brings with it the promise and resolutions. Maybe you are trying to save money, reduce stress, lose weight, help the environment, or spend more time at home with loved ones. A simple solution to many of your goals can be changing your commute. Commuters who share the ride to work in any mode other than driving alone, like a carpool/vanpool, bike, walk, train, or scooter, can use the time spent on their daily commute to help achieve their New Year’s resolutions.
