As a Smart Commute workplace, your efforts to reduce drive alone commuting are central to the success of the overall program, and it is important to recognize this. The Smart Commute Workplace Designation Program gives you the opportunity to showcase the success of your program based on your investments, participation and results.
The Workplace Designation Program has four levels of achievement, Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum, with each level reflecting a greater degree of program investment and success. The designations are based on a wide range of factors, summarized in the scorecard provided. Points are available for participating in campaigns, undertaking surveys, providing carpool parking, and much, much more. Completing the scorecard will give you the designation for your workplace. Once you have your designation, let your local Smart Commute office know and they will provide you with a Designation Certificate to display with pride! If, after a year or more of awesome Smart Commute efforts, you think you deserve a higher designation, you can reassess yourself and let your local Smart Commute office know if you’ve earned the points to move to the next level. Your local Smart Commute office can of course help you complete your scorecard, and work with you to identify ways of moving up to the designation level – we love workplaces who want to Go for Gold (and maybe even Platinum!).
