Austin’s Transportation Department expects Friday to be one of the worst days to be on the city’s streets and highways because of the influx of visitors for the South by Southwest and spring break. To reduce everyone’s traffic headache, the city recommends adopting these steps for what it has dubbed ATX Detour Day:
1. How flexible are you? See if your employer will let you work from home or allow flexible work hours so you can avoid traveling during traditional rush hours.
2. Get your boss on board: Companies interested in exploring commuting options for their workers can visit Movability Austin online at movabilityaustin.org or find resources at the Commute Solutions website.
