“Being designated as one of the Best Workplaces for Commuters is more than just a title; it means an employer is standing behind its commitment to provide employees with access to progressive commuter programs, like discounted transit passes, bicycle-friendly amenities, and rideshare solutions,” said Julie Bond, Program Manager for Best Workplaces for Commuters. “Making such a commitment has its perks. Besides being a leader in the nation’s evolving transportation landscape, these employers are better able to recruit and retain talent, save on overhead costs, and be more environmentally sustainable.”
To qualify for the national designation, workplaces must submit an online application annually to demonstrate they meet the BWC National Standard of Excellence. The Best Workplaces for Commuters program offers awardees access to a wide range of support services to promote travel choices other than driving alone in the rush hour, including webinars, benchmark surveys, and guidebooks. These resources help workplaces understand how commuter programs benefit their organizations and employees.
