Commuting by bus, train, light rail, street car or water taxi

What employers can do to help employees commute by transit:

  • Help employees get information on transit routes and schedules by promoting and using the Online Trip Planner.
  • Offer employees some flexibility in start and quit times so they may access their best transit routes.
  • Provide the convenience of ordering transit passes for employees.
  • Reduce the cost of a transit pass for employees:
  • Help employees make the connection between the rail station and work (or home) by providing a VanShare.
  • Help employees get up-to-the minute transit information by promoting Metro's email alert system.
  • Provide a Guaranteed Ride Home program for transit users.
  • Provide on-site amenities such as lunch room facilities and postal services.
  • Where there is a charge for parking, allow bus commuters to drive and park for free one or two days each month for personal appointments.
