This report focuses on the potential reduction in work-related travel in urban areas as a consequence of telecommuting. To estimate future transportation implications of teleworking, two scenarios for Norway in the year 2010 are outlined. Based upon these scenarios and available demographic data, implications for car-based commuting in the regions of Oslo and Bergen are calculated. It is shown that car travel could be reduced by 3 to 6 %. This reduction will have considerable effect on traffic congestion and pollution in peak-hour traffic.
