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.
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
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
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
