Travel Avoidance

Reduce energy consumption and commuting time

Sometimes the best way to travel smarter is to reduce travel altogether.  Adjust your work hours to beat rush hour or utilize technology to avoid the need to travel.  Cutting travel time down is good for saving energy in transport and is good for saving personal time as well.
