Tips for Employers

Here are a few things that you can do to promote carpooling by your employees.

Emergency ride home.

At times it may be necessary to have an employee work past their regular hours. This can be a problem if the employee is part of a rideshare group. An easy way around this obstacle is to offer them a “emergency ride home.” Contact us for more details on how this works.

Provide information.

Employees can be hesitant to join a carpool or vanpool because they lack all the information they need to make a decision. Providing information on topics such as how it works and rideshare protocols may be all it takes to get staff excited about participating in this commute option.

Preferred parking.

Reward your ridesharing employees by designating parking spaces close to the entrance of your workplace.

Reduced parking fees.

If employees pay for their parking, another reward for rideshare participants could be subsidized parking.
