|Carpooling saves money and frees up parking spaces. It is also a great way for employees to get to know each other and build a rapport. Gohio Commute’s online ride-matching platform provides you and your employees with an easy to use, interactive, and free way to set up carpools. As an employer, you can even set up your own custom subsite so that your employees can seamlessly match with one another.|
|Vanpools are a way for 5-15 people to get access to a van, complete with insurance, maintenance, and fuel. All members of the vanpool split the costs, keeping your commute affordable and stress-free. It’s a great option for groups of commuters who live and work near each other and have similar work schedules. Because a third party owns and maintains the vehicle, a vanpool can be an easy, turnkey solution for you and your fellow commuters.|
||If you already ride your bike to work, you may be familiar with its benefits. But if you’re new to bike commuting or are looking for more information, consider the following: It's healthier; it lowers your stress; it increases productivity; it saves money; and it improves air quality!|
||Walking is the easiest way to get to work – it requires no special equipment and is free. All you need is a pair of shoes. Walking is great exercise, helps increase your productivity at work, frees you from the stress of traffic, and generates no carbon emissions. It also pairs great with other commute modes, like biking and public transit.|
||Whenever you hop aboard a bus or train, you can feel confident that your choice may lower your stress levels and your costs. Each transit rider also helps take another car off the road, eases congestion and improves air quality. Northeast Ohio has every transit option to meet your needs – buses, trolleys, light and heavy rail, and bus-rapid transit (BRT). So sit back, relax, and let someone else do the driving.|
||Telecommuting allows employees to fulfill job responsibilities at a site other than their primary business location. By telecommuting, employees can work from virtually anywhere. A typical telecommuter can have an easier time focusing on work if he or she creates a private, dedicated space for a home office and has easy access to everything needed for the job.|
|Guaranteed Ride Home
||What if you get sick at work and need to go home – but you belong to a car or vanpool and don’t have your vehicle available? What if you need to pick up a child at school? What if an emergency comes up at work and you need to work overtime? In these situations, NOACA’s Guaranteed Ride Home (GRH) Program serves as an insurance policy that you will be able to get home, to a Park-N-Ride lot, child’s school, or other location where you started your commute for the day.
