Workplace Designations

The Smart Commute Workplace program recognizes your efforts in providing commuter options activities for your employees.

Your organization can qualify for one of three designation levels, calculated annually.

  • Smart Commute Workplace – granted to all workplaces that are part of the Smart Commute program. This designation recognizes your commitment to helping your employees find alternatives to driving alone to work.
  • Smart Commute Silver Workplace – granted to workplaces that take the program beyond the basics, providing enhanced commuter options for their employees. Smart Commute Silver Workplaces want to make a significant positive impact – on their employees’ commutes, congestion, and/or the environment – and are willing to invest effort and resources to implement relevant programs.
  • Smart Commute Gold Workplace – granted to outstanding workplaces that demonstrate innovation, focus on measuring their success and achieve significant positive outcomes and demonstrated success in convincing their employees to choose other ways to get to work than driving alone.

The Workplace Designation program rewards efforts that a) grow over time by implementing new initiatives that help more commuters choose alternatives to driving alone, and b) continue to engage commuters at your workplace on a regular basis.
