OK...my solution only works for certain people...but why not walk to work? If you live within a couple of miles of your workplace...walking could be the answer!
In doing this you are not only ensuring you will get to work, but you are also reducing your carbon footprint, AND saving your self money. Plus...walking at a brisk pace is good for your heart.
Therefore, all in all, walking is a very good solution to the people who live within walking distance of their workplace.
By the way, if it would take you longer than an hour to walk from home to work...this solution is not viable, and I would catch a bus if they are running
