This research proposes that the sustainability of telecommuters’ travel patterns is more dependent upon the accessibility of non-work activities than on the distance to the workplace for less frequent commuting journeys. Using the National Travel Survey for England 2009-2016, the travel of those who identify themselves as working from home at least once a week are compared to other working adults by measuring and modelling the number and purpose of trips within a week's travel diary, independent of distance or mode. We conclude that by proactively addressing the accessibility of non-work destinations, planners can help telecommuters travel sustainably.
