TELECOMMUTING AND TRAVEL: STATE OF THE PRACTICE, STATE OF THE ART

This paper provides an overview of the status of telecommuting in the U.S., especially as it relates to changes in travel behavior. Regarding the state of the practice, the paper discusses some refinements to the definition of telecommuting that have developed through increased operational experience. It reports several policy statements involving telecommuting, and explores the appeal of telecommuting as a public policy instrument. It highlights some trends in the implementation of home-based and work center-based telecommuting, and suggests that visible public-sector involvement has been crucial to the increased activity in this area.
