Whether your organization wants to reduce parking demand, equalize benefits received by your employees regardless of how they get to work, have a robust sustainability plan, or has another goal, a Commuter Benefits Plan is an organized, professional approach to being effective.
Working together with Durham Employee Transportation Coordinators (ETCs), GoDurham local transit agency staff, and GoTriangle’s Employer Outreach Coordinator for Durham (Stephanie Loyka), employers are instrumental in improving our environment, quality of life, and reducing traffic congestion and harmful emissions throughout the area.View More
Mission: Cultivating instrumental partnerships is key to achieving our congestion mitigation goals in the Triangle. Working together with Durham employers, ETCs, GoDurham staff and GoTriangle's Outreach Coordinator for Durham County, employers can be instrumental in improving our environment, quality of life, and work-life balance for employees. By maximizing our roles in mitigating traffic congestion and its associated emissions contributing to air quality and health issues, collectively, we can achieve those goals.
The Central Durham "hot spot" includes both Downtown Durham and centrally located employers as well as local universities and colleges in Durham County.
Durham County Trip Reduction Programming: Employers located in Durham County and the City of Durham are encouraged to develop and implement their voluntary Commute Trip Reduction Program at their work sites. Partnering with your local Outreach Coordinator, you can design a program intended to reduce the number and length of drive-alone commute trips to and from your location, while helping to make a positive difference in mobility, commute patterns and air quality in Durham County.
Durham employers are also encouraged to participate in a biennial employee commuting survey (odd numbered years), offered through and administered by GoTriangle free of charge. Survey results are delivered in report format and provide valuable insigt to employee commute habits and alternate mode preferences. This information adds value to both your plan and considerations for future commuter benefits.
Click here to see an example of the most recent Employee Commuting Survey in either English or Spanish.
Accomplishments: As a result of reviewing and measuring Transportation Demand Management (TDM) efforts and accomplishments, Durham employees are working more off-peak hours, have increased their telework participation, and increased the use of both carpooling, vanpooling and transit commute options--all resulting in reducing the number of single occupancy vehicles (SOV) and vehicle miles traveled to and from the workplace.
