Commuter Connections encourages area businesses and their employees to adopt alternative commuting methods such as transit, teleworking, carpooling/vanpooling and bicycling. These methods help to mitigate traffic congestion and provide for cleaner air through reduced auto emissions.
The Commuter Connections annual Employer Recognition Awards Ceremony recognizes employers who have voluntarily initiated programs that facilitate the use of such alternatives. Eligible employer programs included those that marketed alternative commuting options, initiated a successful telework program, or provided incentives that made using alternative transportation modes easier and more attractive than driving alone. Applications are evaluated by a selection committee and winners are chosen for their ability to offer measurable commuter benefits that reduce automobile fuel consumption and emissions through fewer vehicle trips and miles traveled. In addition, winners are selected for their altruistic policies that improved the lives of their employees and the region.
