Saving Gas?

Yahoo! news reports that some workers are taking an opportunity to switch to 4 day work weeks to save money on commutes. The article focuses first on custodians that are actually choosing to not work a 5th day at all given their commuting costs, but certainly people able to work from home are more likely to start exercising that option more and more.

Based out of a location like the Pacific Cannery Lofts, I know my commuting would literally drop in half. The central location and access to public transit helps that cause, but the more exciting option is the zero commute: with entrepreneurs and live-workers looking to be a part of the Pacific Cannery community, a commute can be as simple as walking down the stairs. Investing those savings can amount to several thousands of dollars a year.
