WORKPLACE TRANSPORTATION PROGRAMS ARE GOOD FOR BUSINESS
Pierce Transit works with employers to develop transportation programs that help employees improve their commutes. We provide one-on-one assistance in setting up ORCA Business Accounts to subsidize transit passes, forming carpools and vanpools, educating employees and managers through on-site meetings, and providing incentives to encourage smart commutes. We work with businesses of all sizes. For information about setting up a workplace transportation program, call Karen Henderson at 253.581.8008 or Sharon Stockwell at 253.581.8112 or visit PierceTrips.com.
