How do you control traffic congestion in Toronto ?

Toronto is no different than many large cities all over North America in its traffic congestion problems. For many city workers a 2 or even a 3 hour commute by car is not unusual.

There comes a point where you are spending so much money and time on commuting, that it starts to have an impact on how you make ends meet. We all have to work, but if you spend all your time getting to work, it gets counter productive.

Have you ever considered working in the town or city you live in ? If you look carefully, there may be highly successful companies right under your nose that you could work for, and probably get to by just walking or taking a short bus ride.

If you work locally, you can potentially eliminate the need for one vehicle. Eliminating one vehicle can save some people as much as $18,000 a year. Because this money is not being spent on transit, it goes straight in your pocket.

Look for the success stories about companies in your local paper, concentrate your efforts on finding out about the type of skills that these companies hire. Even in a bad economy, there are always companies that are doing well.

You can save a lot of money and time, just by finding out about them and applying there, getting work close to where you live.
