How to Save Money On Your Work Commute - Finnegan Pierson - ContactCenterWorld.com Blog

How to Save Money On Your Work Commute

Getting to and from work each day costs money. There's no way around that unless you are able to work from home. But, you don't have to spend a good chunk of your hard-earned money on travel expenses if you're smart about it. There are several ways that you can reduce the costs of your daily commute. 

Keep Your Car In Good Shape

Many people travel to and from work in their personal vehicles. Perhaps you live in an area that doesn't offer public transportation, or maybe you have obligations to your family or other commitments that don't fit the schedules of others so you have no other option. Whatever your reasoning, there are still ways that you can lower the costs of operating your car each day so you can cut some travel expenses.

A good tip is to keep your vehicle in the best shape possible. Conduct regular maintenance checks and get it inspected by a professional when needed. Don't ignore any unusual sounds or behaviors. They may be nothing, but if left untreated, a simple fix could develop into a larger, and more costly, problem.

If possible, update your car for a new model every few years. An old or run down vehicle is usually harder on gas, meaning you don't get as many miles to the gallon and end up purchasing more. They also require frequent and costly repairs to keep running. 

You also need to remember to keep your car insured at all times. Driving without car insurance can lead to fines and costly payouts if you are responsible for any accidents. Car insurance is easy to obtain, and you can get the best insurance quotes online for added convenience.

Use Public Transport

If you live in a city or a populated area, then you may want to look into the option of taking public transport to work. Subways and buses are usually low cost and offer a long-term pass to frequent customers at a discount to save you some money. They run on a schedule so you can plan out which ones you need to take in advance. This also simplifies your routine a bit since you just have to get yourself ready and catch a ride, giving you some time during your commute to relax and mentally prepare yourself for the day ahead.

Public transportation also has the added benefit of keeping some cars off the road, which can help to lower levels of pollution. It's an option that helps the environment as well as your wallet.

Carpool

Carpooling is another popular money-saving option. A lot of people carpool when they are traveling from the same general area. Ask around your office or nearby buildings and see if there are any friends or neighbors that you live near that you could start a carpooling group with. Even those who live a short distance away can benefit from a carpool if you choose a central meeting area.

A carpool will also take some of the pressure of driving off of you since the task is alternated between each member. This lowers the amount of wear and tear to your vehicle too. It can even be a good way to make new friends or to build acquaintances into stronger relationships.

Walk or Bike to Work

If you live close enough to your place of work, then you may want to walk or bike there. This is even something that you can do on occasion when the weather is nice to let you get some exercise and fresh air. 

Skipping the car even a few days a week can make a difference in your monthly travel bills. 

Consider one, or more, of these options to save yourself some money. Any of them could be a simple solution to a common problem. No matter where you live, and what your work commute looks like, there's bound to be a money-saving resolution that works for you.
