Employee Commuter Survey
Smart Commute will conduct a confidential employee transportation survey. The survey provides a baseline measure of current commuter traffic patterns and modes of transportation used. The survey also identifies the demand for sustainable transportation options.
The survey results will be summarized in a report that will identify strategies for reducing single occupancy vehicle (SOV) trips. The survey also provides actionable data that can be used to establish meaningful commuting goals for your organization.
Customized Employee Commuting Plan
Smart Commute will assist and advise your staff in the development of a customized employee commuting action plan. We will work closely with your staff to translate the data gathered from the commuter survey into meaningful and measurable commuting strategies.
Smart Commute will organize a launch event at your facility to kick off your Smart Commute program. We will be onsite for a full day to educate and enroll employees in the Carpool Zone and to discuss your commuting strategies. Smart Commute will also provide marketing and promotional materials for the event.
