231 Companies Named as the Best Workplaces for CommutersSM in 2017

TAMPA, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#BWC2017Best
Workplaces for CommutersSM
named 231 U.S.-based companies
to receive 2017 Best Workplaces for Commuters national recognition. This
designation recognizes employers that offer exceptional
employer-provided commuter benefits that meet the National Standard of
Excellence criteria.

To be designated among the nation’s Best Workplaces for Commuters,
employers must provide benefits that result in at least 14% of their
employees no longer driving alone to and from work within a 12-month
period.

“The 231 companies designated as the 2017 Best Workplaces for Commuters
are part of a national movement,” said Julie Bond, program manager for
Best Workplaces for Commuters. “Companies are recognizing that it makes
good business sense to provide commuter benefits, such as subsidizing
bus fares, designating parking for carpoolers or allowing employees to
work from home.”

The Best Workplaces for Commuters program is managed by the Center
for Urban Transportation Research
with support from the National
Center for Transit Research and the Florida Department of
Transportation. The program offers workplaces of all sizes support
services to promote non-driving commuting and
assistance to
determine which commuter benefit options offer financial savings plus
employee value.

“We are extremely proud of our progressive transportation program that
benefits our employees and residents,” said James Paxson, general
manager of Hacienda, a San Francisco Bay area mixed-use community named
to the 2017 Best Workplaces for Commuters list. “Our benefits certainly
give us a competitive edge.”

To earn national designation, workplaces must submit an online
application
and meet the National Standard of Excellence by offering
a wide variety of commuter-support programs such as subsidized transit
or vanpool passes, compressed workweek schedules or secured bicycle
parking. All workplaces must have a point of contact internally to
address employee questions and provide access to an Emergency
Ride Home
program.

“The Best Workplaces for Commuters benefit programs are encouraged or
even required by many states, local municipalities, or government
agencies,” said Bond. “Recently, New York City and Washington, DC
enacted an ordinance mandating employers with 20 or more employees must
offer commuter benefits. And, the Florida Department of Transportation
(FDOT) encourages workplaces participation by underwriting the Best
Workplace for Commuters application fee.”
