CHICAGO, —September 15, 2009 — /PRNewswire/ -- NAVTEQ, the leading global provider of digital map, traffic and location data for in-vehicle, portable, wireless and enterprise solutions, provides time-saving tips for student commuters who are living at home and commuting to school. With high tuition, room and board costs at both public and private colleges and universities, this could mean that a growing number of students are spending extra hours on the road getting to school and back.

Commuting 101:
The best way to cut the commute to campus is to schedule classes when traffic is lightest. When possible, avoid classes that begin, or end, near 9 am and 5 pm. If that's unavoidable, take advantage of the campus student center or library during rush hour, and travel during off hours.
