The must-have sustainable commute resources for employers
As an employer you have the power to make a positive impact on your community by promoting alternative transportation for your employees. Ride Together Pierce is on a mission to make Pierce County a more sustainable place to live and work for everyone. Our role in creating this future together is through offering a range of free tools and resources that truly help employers support their employees in making the switch to more planet-friendly and cost-effective transportation options.
It can't be overstated that supporting and working with your employees in this manner can pay dividends in retaining employees and allowing your organization to thrive!
Based on our research and conversations with current clients, employees want to try out new ways of getting to work. And there are different options for each person that can fit their lifestyle — and work-style. However, many employees don’t know where to start. Or who to go to.
The best way is for businesses to lead the way in adopting sustainable transportation alternatives by integrating a Transportation Program, where we help your business with free resources, consultation and tools to ensure success. We know you have questions about how it all works — let’s get you those answers.
Why choose alternative transportation? Discover the many benefits (yes even tax benefits) from boosting productivity and employee retention to saving money on parking and reducing traffic congestion in your area.
By taking steps to reduce our reliance on cars, businesses can improve their environmental performance and enhance their social relations.
If your business is affected by the CTR (Commute Trip Reduction) law, you are required to have a transportation program in place. This program must help to reduce the number of drive-alone commutes to your worksite. See which requirements you’ll need to successfully build out your transportation program.
Voluntary transportation programs
Even if your business is not required to have a transportation program, there are many benefits to doing so. A well-designed transportation program can help to reduce traffic congestion, improve air quality, and save businesses and their employees money.
To ensure your company has a successful transportation program, we have supportive services to help you get started, maintain the program, and tools to manage its effectiveness.
Emergency ride home, employee training, customer support and how-to guides are just a few of the growing tools and resources we have available for your company to promote worksite transportation programs.
