Work will evolve ... lot's of business journeys are really a waste of time - conference calling and virtual meetings are going to catch on - a lot.
Obviously there is no substitute for being there in person sometimes and companies will pay for this, I don't see that it is going to be an overly significant cost in business terms.
If those reps don't travel then the company doesn't make any money. This is just going to be an additional business expense. This happens all the time, commodities increase in price, regulations change, tax liabilities change, pension funds go belly up.
