To get started call
Whether you are looking for a few posters or interested in setting up a commuter program, Pace is delighted to collaborate with businesses and organizations to introduce public transportation and rideshare options to employees. Pace hopes these resources help with educating employees on how to get to work as well as free up parking space, support LEED transportation credits, and reduce congestion and air pollution.
Pace Commuter Toolkit
The Pace Commuter Toolkit is designed to assist employers with educating their workforce on their workday commute, starting or enhancing a commuter program and providing ready-to-use materials and money-saving resources.

The Pace Employer Commuter Grant may help with supporting additional commuter services or promotion of existing bus or rideshare options. The grant provides up to $20,000 for subsidizing a qualified Employee Commuter Program that encourages public transit and/or rideshare.
Pace offers a free regional ridematching system, PaceRideShare.com, which allows employees to register at no cost and access a list of people who match their commute. Workers can also learn about the Pace Vanpool Incentive Program, access vanpool start-up forms, calculate driving costs, match-up with others bicycling or walking and periodically register for gift card drawings online.
The site is a valuable tool to employers too. PaceRideShare employer administrators have access to pollution reduction reports and an email list of registered participants. Employers who offer a commuter program often increase the number of rideshare groups formed when they direct employees to register on PaceRideShare.com and provide other benefits such as priority parking or a transit subsidy. To learn more about rideshare or to become an employer administrator, visit PaceRideShare.com.
This transit benefit program gives companies and their employees an opportunity to use pre-tax dollars to pay for bus, train or vanpool fares. The Internal Revenue Service Section 132(f) currently allows employers and/or employees to set aside funds each month before taxes for public transportation and vanpooling. Tax provisions allow parking costs to be taken as a tax-free fringe benefit for anyone who drives to work.
