Commuting at $4 a Gallon...

..is a real burden for many! While increasing gas prices and environmental considerations are encouraging many to get off the road, some companies are finding ways to help their employees with this goal.

Last week, the Seattle Times had an article, "Employers Going Beyond Requirements for Commute Alternatives," that discussed how some employers are giving additional incentives to employees to get off the road:

  • Transit subsidy (T-Mobile)
  • Shuttle service (Microsoft)
  • Transportation counselors (Children's Hospital & Regional Medical Center)
  • Telework (Entellium)
  • Bonus for biking (Mithun architecture firm)
  • Zipcar (Safeco)
What is your employer doing for you?
