If I Could Fix My Commute, I Would…

Eureka!

Eureka!

The Washington Post recently asked my DREAM question in a survey poll: What Would Fix Your Commute?  There are so many possibilities here, I can barely function!

Three things I would do to fix my commute:

(1) A Shorter Commute

I would definitely make it shorter — instead of it taking 40-45 minutes, it would take less than half of that — 15-20 minutes.

(2) A Consistent Commute

This commute would be a consistent 15-20 minutes so I don’t have that sense of dread that often compels me to “step on it” (even when I’m not running late) just in case I run into a monster traffic jam only one or two miles from my destination.

(3) A Budget-Friendly Commute

My desired commute would not cost an arm and a leg.  Sure, I understand the idea behind congestion-based pricing, but let’s be real here.  If I don’t have to pay more, I don’t want to!

If you take the poll I mentioned earlier, they may share the results at a day-long planning event on Oct. 21 called “Fix My Commute.”  At the event, various experts and advocates will gather to discuss solutions to our area’s commuting problems.

So…what would fix your commute?  Feel free to share your insights right here!
