Would you like to spend 19 days a year in a car stuck in traffic? It sounds like a post-apocalyptic nightmare, but it's actually the average amount of time Americans waste taking solo car commutes every year.
Here at TransitScreen we like to help our employees have the most convenient commute possible and for some of our staff, that includes bikes! But, no one has the same commute and with so many modes of transit at our disposal, you may not even travel the same every day. That's why we provide shower facilities for our employees who like to bike to work, or via another form of travel that may not leave you squeaky clean when you get to work!
