Alternatives to public transport
If you don’t live too far from your work, this is the perfect opportunity to burn some calories by riding a bicycle, a scooter or skateboard. Our advice: check the weather report before heading out.
You can also choose to share a ride with someone who owns a car and travels in the same direction as you: try www.covoiturage.fr, www.covoiturage.com or www.123envoiture.com.
For Parisians, Vélib - the city's rent-a-bicycle service - will be a precious ally, but it might be hard to find one! (www.velib.paris.fr).
