Okay, you get it. Commuter benefits add up to some major savings for employers and employees alike, which is great. But, what about the environment? Does all this taking mass transportation or opting to bike to work help Mother Nature? Yes, indeed!
Commuter benefits were actually born from the Clean Air Act of 1990. They result in less congested highways, which leads to cleaner air. Commuter benefits truly demonstrate commitment to the triple bottom line (people, planet and profit).
How we help the environment
