Even many rural areas offer public transportation, and there are several practices organizations can adopt to help employees and customers make better use of public transportation.
- Siting facilities within easy walking distance to bus stops and bike share and car share locations can make your site more accessible.
- Making sure your hours of operation fit bus schedules can support employees and customers who rely on public transportation or who might save money by using public transit.
- Educating employees about available bus schedules, routes and fees can help encourage them to use the bus system.
- Offer employee incentives to encourage commuting by bus and to reduce the need for on-site parking.
