AN ASSESSMENT OF THE POTENTIAL OF TELECOMMUTING AS A WORK TRIP REDUCTION STRATEGY FOR THE CENTRAL PUGET SOUND REGION

This report on telecommuting was prepared in support of the VISION 2020 project of the Puget Sound Council of Governments. VISION 2020 analyzed growth and transportation alternatives for the central Puget Sound region. The telecommuting assessment was used during the initial phases of sensitivity testing and alternatives identification. The issue was subsequently integrated into a more comprehensive demand management strategy, included in the preferred vision. The report is presented in four sections: Overview of Telecommuting; Major Issues; Potential Impacts of Telecommuting on Travel Patterns in the Puget Sound Region; and Conclusions and Recommendations.
