US 36 Commuter Incentives

Save Money on Your Commute with US 36 Commuter Incentives

As part of the US 36 Express Lanes Project and other funding sources, 36 Commuting Solutions is implementing commuter resources and subsidies to reduce the number of solo drivers and increase the use of transit, vanpooling and telework.

Join us to give your new commute option a try via the following subsidies and programs:

 

Telework

Are you interested in boosting your company’s productivity? Do you believe that your employees time is better spent working than commuting?

Learn more about telework benefits via quarterly “TeleWorkshops” taking place throughout the US 36 corridor. You will attain tools and information to fully implement a telework program within your organization.

In addition, $2,500 is available for financial assistance to establish new telework programs, including hardware, software or policy development for your business. To apply for these funds please fill out and return this application.

 

Vanpooling

Vanpools are  particularly effective for groups of 5 to 15 people with similar commutes that travel distances of 15 miles+ to and from work. Vanpool participants are provided with a van to use for your commute and in return pay a monthly fee that covers the costs of the van, fuel, maintenance and insurance.

Vanpool subsidy: 36 Commuting Solutions will provide a three-month reimbursement for new vanpoolers traveling on US 36 in the following format:
- 50% off the first month fare
- 30% off the second month
- 20% off the third month

Participants will be asked to complete an application and short survey about your current commute before and after receiving the subsidies.

An example of how these subsidies breakdown into a typical vanpool (five people) costs is below:
