An upside of teleworking: Reducing your carbon footprint
In addition to helping stop the spread of COVID-19, more people working from home means that we’re collectively reducing our region’s carbon footprint and saving money.
The average Central Indiana commuter drives 40.8 miles and spends 50.6 minutes to and from work every day.
So for just one day of telecommuting, the average commuter in our region saves $23 and improves air quality by reducing 32 pounds of pollution from the air we breathe.
Entering the telecommuting and working-from-home world for the first time? Here are some tips from Commuter Connect staff.
As the driving force behind improved mobility for Central Indiana, the Central Indiana Regional Transportation Authority (CIRTA) and its Commuter Connect, Workforce Connector and County Connect programs create a healthier community and generate greater access for all to the region’s countless opportunities, amenities and services.
