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 vanpools and vanshares, 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 us at 253.983.3792 or CommuteSolutions@PierceTransit.org.
We offer a variety of free services designed to support a transportation program that's just right for your business and employees.
The following materials are available at no cost to businesses in Pierce County:
- Brochures and Posters; Vanpool, RideshareOnline.com and more
- Pierce Transit and Sound Transit brochures
Presentations and Education
Pierce Transit's staff is happy to present to employees, managers, and other interested parties on topics such as the benefits of commute options, how to overcome transportation barriers, and the value of ORCA (One Regional Card for All) Business Accounts.
Transportation Fairs and Events
Pierce Transit's staff is available to attend transportation fairs and other special events. We will assist with forming vanpools, share transit information and connect employees with transportation resources.
We will also meet with employees in a round-table environment to educate and inform them on commute options.
Congratulations to Tacoma Trophy for having the highest average ridership per employee in 2022.“Recently one of our customers told us that our decision to offer ORCA cards to our team members demonstrates our high level of care and concern for our team. We know our team members who rely on public transportation appreciate that benefit probably more than anything else we offer. For us, ORCA just makes sense financially; it’s a good value.”
