April 25, 2017 – Shared Employer Shuttles: Sharing the Road and the Savings

In this webinar, Shared Employer Shuttles: Sharing the Road and the Savings, three speakers from US employers sharing the cost of shuttle services explored topics such as high-tech long haul shuttles, a partnership with a microtransit provider, and transportation management association (TMA) members sharing connections to suburban rail stations.

Private employer shuttles are an effective tool for lowering single occupant vehicle (SOV) rate from areas not well-served by existing public transit, attracting and retaining top talent, and enhancing employee productivity. But operating shuttle service can also be incredibly expensive for employers.

Tom Harrington of Intuit, Matt Frykman of Glassdoor, and Tim Grzesiakowski of TMA Lake Cook each discussed how they chose their shuttle solutions, the benefits, and the challenges their organizations face in the rapidly changing transportation market.

January 28, 2016 – Fixing America’s Surface Transportation ACT

On December 4, 2015, President Obama signed into law the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act, or “FAST Act” – the first Federal law in over ten years to provide long-term funding certainty for surface transportation. Best Workplaces for Commuters and the Association for Commuter Transportation co-sponsored this webinar to summarize the provisions of the law of most interest to transportation demand management professionals and employers. Jason Pavluchuk, ACT’s government relations representative, discussed changes that create opportunities for the potential expanded role for employers to have a stronger voice in the transportation planning process. Mr. Pavluchuk summarized Congestion Mitigation Air Quality (CMAQ) Program as a Federal Highway formula program that a wide variety of TDM and employer based commuter activities are eligible for funding. He also addressed funding Surface Transportation Block Grant program which replaces the Surface Transportation Program. Finally, he noted that a new program, Advanced Transportation & Congestion Management Technologies Deployment, may have the largest, long-term affect on TDM. Under this innovation program, USDOT will annually make grants to model deployment sites for large scale installation & operation of advanced technologies to address transportation problems.
