How can you help your employees?

  • Have transit schedules, and rideshare information available to your employees. Providing this information will allow employees to be aware of other forms of transit in the case of an emergency such as a snowstorm, or if they need to have their car serviced.
  • Reserved parking for carpools and vanpools. This will not only make it easier for these employees to find parking, but will also help in reducing the number of employee parking spaces.
  • Host a commuting information day. To host a free commuter information session for your employees please contact our RideSmart Coordinator at (540) 636-8800
  • Provide transit incentives. Providing incentives such as SmartBenifits allows employees to pay transit fare without cash. In addition, employees using SmartBenifits receive an additional benefit, which is that they can declare as income on taxes. For more information on SmartBenifits, and how to set it up click here.This is a bulleted list.
  • Reduce the number of employee parking spaces, more room for customer parking.
  • Reduce the stress of employees
  • Provide more personal time for employees who are not driving. They can read a book or sleep during their commute.
  • Decrease commute time by having access to HOV lane.
