Why is green commuting so important?
The single occupant car commuter is the most common way people commute, but it causes further damage to our environment because of the greenhouse gases that cars emit. Every time we get into our cars to commute to work, we’re polluting the environment.
It doesn’t have to be that way, though. If we utilize public transportation and alternative commuting methods like micromobility, we can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
The positive impacts of using public transportation
Reduces harmful carbon dioxide greenhouse gas emissions that damage the environment.
Reduces traffic congestion, which saves commuters time and reduces stress.
Saves 4.2 billion gallons of gas each year, with more than 11 million gallons saved every day.
Helps households save an average of $6,251 every year.
Our commitment to the environment
As part of our commitment to sustainable commuting, we’ve teamed up with Intuit, the global financial platform, to help more companies take positive steps to reduce their carbon emissions.
Public Transportation Options
The following transit options can be paid for using pre-tax money, up to the current IRS tax limit of $280 per month.
- Water Taxi and Light Rail
- Ridesharing (UberPool and Lyft Shared)
Along with traditional public transit, we are proud to offer sustainable micromobility options such as:
- Bike sharing
- Bike shops
- Corporate shuttles
