GET AROUND DOWNTOWN
Downtown Atlanta is extremely accessible. With four MARTA stops, GCT, CCT, and GRTA stops, over 12 miles of bicycle infrastructure, and walkable streets, it is easy to get around Downtown sustainably.
BUS & RAIL
Using transit for part or all of your commute means you're reducing air pollution and traffic. It can also save you money. Local transit providers provide an economical way to let someone else do the driving for you!
Additionally, as a service to Downtown employers, through participation in the Downtown Green Source program, CAP/ADID provides discounted transit passes to Downtown employers. Take advantage of transit pass discounts and convenient delivery by using CAP/ADID's transit pass services. One order, one phone call, one invoice for all transit passes! Employers can contact Lynn Lopes for program details.
CARPOOL & VANPOOL
Seize the opportunity to try carpooling or van-pooling. Carpool or vanpool once a month or every day. Either way, you will benefit. Ridesharing saves on gas and vehicle maintenance and reduces stress. If you are interested in carpooling or vanpooling, Georgia Commute Options can help. You can receive a free ridematch today!
TELEWORK, FLEX-TIME AND COMPRESSED WORK WEEKS
Commute less and work more. Flex-time, compressed work weeks and teleworking create a way for employee and employers to maximize work time by flexing or even eliminating a daily commute. Employers seeking to explore the possibilities of alternative work arrangements can receive free consultations through Downtown Green Source.
We can offer expert recommendations and service on these programs. Additionally, we can provide access to a national consultant for free telework and alternative work arrangement consultation. For more information or to schedule an alternative transportation consultation, please contact Shayna Pollock.
Choosing a commute alternative not only saves money, it also earns you money. You're eligible for up to $100 just for switching from driving alone. Visit Georgia Commute Options today!
