Use Broadband, not the bus !

An alternate answer?

In this increasingly virtualised "society of information" we are told we live in....

In this country where - according to some - the immense majority of jobs are in "services" spent in front of computer screens the whole day.....

In this country where - at least in urban areas - high speed wired and wireless communications are ubiquitous....

Couldn't we just simply massively reduce the prehistoric need for a daily physical commute by encouraging work from home ? (With employer subsidy since they could massively reduce their costs for expensive offices, and other people hosting infrastructures)...

Probably is too good to be true but isn't there some mileage in this idea?
