Of course we have been working -just from home. But what happens when we go back to our physical offices, coworking spaces or otherwise? 

Many employees who have held jobs that were granted the luxury to work from home during the coronavirus pandemic have begun to notice time in much different ways. Specifically, the time involved in commuting. It is not uncommon for city dwellers based in Berlin to commute an hour per day, for many in cities like New York or London this can be even longer! A recent study from Germany’s Federal Institute for Research on Building, Urban Affairs and Spatial Development found a rise of 0.2% in commuter numbers. This puts the total number of active commuters in Germany at 18.4 billion.
