Alternative Transportation

Parking is expensive and limited. Traffic congestion is a problem. New recruits look for companies with robust transportation programs.

Bikes are a core part of a good alternative transportation strategy.

If more of your employees ride a bike, you have fewer cars to accommodate, less strain on parking resources and lower infrastructure costs.

A parking space in a paved lot costs about $2,500 and often as much as $30,000 in a parking structure. You can fit 6-12 bikes in a single parking space, greatly reducing the cost per employee.

To encourage more employees to ride a bike, support bike commute programs with secure and convenient bike parking, showers, incentives and education.

Discourage motor vehicle trips during the workday by having a fleet of company bikes. They’re great for short trips, from building to building, on large corporate campuses or in urban areas.
