Go Green - TeleWork

Go Green, TeleWork - woman teleworking photo Eliminating your trip entirely by teleworking is another way to reduce your "carbon footprint." Instead of physically commuting to work every day, ask your employer if you can work from home one or more days per week. Our FREE 511 Employer Services program can even help businesses set up a telework program. You can view contact information for Employer Services Representatives here.

 

Rideshare

Want to green your commute? Ridesharing is 2-6 people in a carpool or 7-15 people in a vanpool. It’s a green travel alternative because you help reduce the total number of cars on the road. You save time and money and the earth gets a breath of fresh air.
