The future of public transport with the rise of telecommuting
How does working from home affect mobility in Switzerland? As the working world becomes increasingly flexible and home offices become the norm, commuting will become much less common. In order to make strategic decisions on investment and operations, public transport providers need to know how the demand will change. As part of a research project for the federal government, ASE is studying the effects of home office trends on mobility in Switzerland.
Home offices eliminate old commuting routes and make people ask if they really have to live close to work. This phenomenon has a direct influence on the distances people travel on public transport.
