This paper summarises Compaq’s corporate commuter management experience in facilitating the transport of its human resource to its site at Worton Grange in Reading, UK. This edge of town, 20‐acre site was selected for Digital’s UK headquarters some 18 years ago, largely because of its accessibility by road. Since this acquisition much has changed, culminating in Compaq’s take‐over of Digital in 1998. The paper reflects on these changes and the basis of Compaq’s Worton Grange commuter plan. It summarises the experience gained and provides key pointers to the future management of the journey to work.
