10 years ago, when I was in university, telework was branded as the "next big thing" in transportation planning. Supposedly telework, hand in hand with new urbanist development, would reduce congestion, eliminate the need for new roads, and have worrisome implications for public transit as a majority of workers began to work from home. The idea didn't really seem to take off in a big way, for a variety of reasons.
This article made me think about telework again and wonder if perhaps it is starting to find a role. A very limited role at that.
