Some find it easier to travel back and forth to work than others. While this typically isn't an issue if you already own a car, others have to depend on co-workers, friends, family members and in some cases, complete strangers when commuting back and forth to work. Thankfully, workers who don't have the benefit of reliable transportation have more options than ever before.
Public transportation is one of the most common and readily accessible methods – as long as it's available in your area. There are a wide variety of vehicles associated with public transportation, including buses, subway systems, trains, trolleys and more – but the availability of such services depends on your location.
Carpools are a great way to split the costs associated with your daily commute. Although many carpools are structured around individual companies and shifts, others include staff members from nearby shops and businesses.
A common alternative to the traditional carpool, on-demand transportation includes the likes of Uber and Lyft. Not only do these services tend to be cheaper than taxis, they double as a great way to make money if you already have a vehicle of your own.
Discount Taxi Services
In some areas, local taxis offer steep discounts for those who frequently use their services. The discounted amount and travel requirements vary greatly from company to company, but it's worth looking into if you don't have a reliable means of transportation.
You might also consider hiring a personal driver. In most cases, this involves hiring a third-party driver to assume responsibility for your personal vehicle. Depending on your exact arrangements, they'll drop you off at the start of your shift and pick you up at the end of the day – but the minute details and specifics will need to be worked out ahead of time.
