Telecommuting helps ease congestion; solo driving doesn’t

October 10, 2022

A new study of commuting in this area revealed two conflicting trend lines — one encouraging and one distressing. The 2022 State of the Commute survey, done every three years by the Commuter Connections program of the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments, found that telecommuting exploded during the pandemic. The report stated that 66% of commuters in the Washington region telework occasionally, up from 35% in 2019, before COVID-19 transformed the world.  The survey also found that people telecommuted an average of 3.37 days per week in 2022, an increase from the 2019 average of 1.2 days per week.
