Employers & Military Commands
TRAFFIX staff provides free assistance to area businesses and military commands. We help them develop and implement customized transportation alternative programs to lower commuting costs, increase productivity, and improve the quality of life for their staff.
Helping Area Businesses
Commuter programs can support employees who use alternate modes of transportation, which can include employees who carpool, vanpool, bike or walk to work, have a compressed work week or flexible hours, telework or take transit. Supporting commuting options can benefit employers through improvements in employee wellness, productivity, and retention. Potential savings are available to employer through tax benefits and reduced parking demand.
TRAFFIX Commuter Benefits Program can stand side-by-side with your organization’s medical, dental and vision benefits.
- Meet with a Commuter Outreach Specialist to discuss how the TRAFFIX program can help employees with their commute and appoint an employee to serve as the liaison between TRAFFIX staff and company/command.
