Guidebook to Implementing an Employer-based Commute Options Program
Employers interested in developing and implementing sustainable travel options for employees.
- Massachusetts Department of Transport
“An employer-based commute options program describes a voluntary program aimed at improving employees’ commutes while saving money, improving employee satisfaction, recruitment and retention, and reducing environmental impact.
Programs often include a variety of commute options strategies that are tailored towards each organization. Examples include infrastructure that enables an active commute, such as bike racks, and benefits that reduce employee commute expenses.
This guidebook was created to assist employers of all sizes and across Massachusetts to develop and implement commute options programs that address the needs of their employees and make business sense.”
