Central Indiana companies use a variety of incentives for responsible commuting. Every organization is different, so pick what works best for your culture and size.
Subsidize employees’ bus passes and vanpool fares
Helping pay for your employees’ commute will encourage responsible commuting and make your employees happy.
Implement preferential carpool/vanpool parking
Encourage responsible commuting by giving responsible commuters preferential dedicated parking spots. Commuter Connect will even provide the signs free of charge.
Encourage participation with time off, gift cards and other perks
Provide low-cost incentives to spark high-value employee appreciation.
Establish and promote pre-tax Transit Spending Accounts
Similar to health savings accounts, the IRS allows pre-tax accounts to pay for bus fares and vanpool fees. Learn more here.
Install bike lockers and showers
Eliminate the “Where will I put my bike?” and “I don’t want to feel sweaty and grimy all day” worries!
Participate in Car Free Day Indy
Set up a promotion for World Car Free Day (Sept. 22) and encourage everyone in the company to take part. In the past, local employers have provided company-branded T-shirts or bike jerseys to those ridesharing or biking to work. Others plan group outings to lunch or an after-work happy hour.
Commuter Connect staff can help your company implement any and all of these ideas. Reach out at 317-327-RIDE and let us know what you need.
