The number of people coming into the office once a week has soared in recent months as employers from Apple Inc. to Peloton set deadlines for their return. 

A full 50% of office visits globally were just once a week in the second quarter, up from 44% in the first quarter, according to data from Basking.io, a workplace-occupancy analytics company. At the same time, fewer people made the commute four to five days a week, especially in large cities.
