BURLINGAME, Calif., Apr. 17, 2018 – WeDriveU, the leader in corporate and university transportation solutions, today honored 10 client sites named 2018 Best Workplaces for Commuters. The awards recognize exceptional employer-provided commuter benefits that meet the “National Standard of Excellence” criteria.
Clients in Boston, Seattle and the San Francisco Bay Area made the list, with several awarded for multiple sites. Winners include athenaCommutes (athenahealth), RideIn (LinkedIn), Salesforce, SRPGo (Stanford Research Park), VMware Palo Alto (VMware) and other leading organizations.
“These winners’ bold mobility approaches move our economy and communities forward,” said Julie Bond, Program Manager, Best Workplaces for Commuters. “We salute their impact on reducing traffic congestion and emissions with creative options to get to and from work.”
In remarks at a Commute.org event honoring local winners, LinkedIn’s head of Global Transportation, Mike Alba, described how LinkedIn gives employees options to get to work more productively – from the train, to wifi buses, hopping on a bike or sharing a ride – resulting in LinkedIn’s employee drive-alone rate decreasing from 70 percent to 55 percent last year.
Alba added, “RideIn started in 2013 to craft a great commute experience for employees while reducing traffic congestion for everyone in the Bay Area. Today, RideIn’s impact is astounding. We continually work together with employees, and get feedback from them, to make sure we're able to provide a good commute experience. We’re grateful to be recognized as a Best Workplace for Commuters."
