NEW COMMUTER CHOICE WEBSITE LAUNCHED
 

(SafetyAlerts) - A new website has been launched by EPA and Department of Transportation to support the Commuter Choice Leadership Initiative, which is the agency=s first business/government partnership to reduce air pollution and global warming associated with vehicle use.

The goal of this initiative is to reduce the traffic and air pollution of 15 million cars. U.S. employers can make important contributions to improving energy resources, reducing air pollution and improving public health through this voluntary program.

The new website provides information on: 1) what employers need to become a Commuter Choice Employer and meet the National Standard of Excellence for commuter benefits; 2) how U.S. employers can save hundreds of millions of dollars in taxes, parking facility expenses and employee turnover costs and 3) how employers can save their employees hundreds of millions of dollars in taxes and transportation costs.

The new website has a list of over 200 employers that have committed to meeting the National Standard of Excellence for employer-provided commuter benefits, qualifying them as Commuter Choice Employers. More information on this initiative is found at: http://www.commuterchoice.gov.
