Telecommuting and Carpools and Vanpools
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) supports local governments that strive to reduce traffic congestion through telecommuting and carpool and vanpool programs. Companies with telecommuting allow their employees to work from home in lieu of traveling to work every day. With carpools and vanpools, employees reduce vehicle trips to and from work.
The best practices, project resources, and tools listed on this page can help you implement these telecommuting and carpool and vanpool programs to reduce highway traffic congestion.
