by Salary.com Staff - Original publish date: December 5, 2011

# 5 Go Hybrid

If you have no choice but to drive, you may want to consider a fuel-efficient hybrid car.

# 4 Carpool

Do you have a co-worker that lives nearby or a friend that works in the next building? Find a carpooling buddy and save some cash and gas.

# 3 Public Transportation

Taking public transportation may add some time onto your commute, so bring a good book, magazine or newspaper.

# 2 Ride a Bike

If you work a little bit far to walk, riding a bike is another cost-effective option. Remember to wear your helmet!

# 1 Take a Walk

If you work within walking distance of work, there’s really no less expensive option.
