Parking Cash Out: Implementing Commuter Benefits as One of the Nation's Best Workplaces for Commuters

This document is one in a series of briefing papers designed to help employers implement commuter benefits to achieve the Best Workplaces for Commuters designation. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) have established a voluntary National Standard of Excellence for employer-pro-vided commuter benefits. Commuter benefits help American workers get to and from work in ways that cut air pollution and global warming pollution, improve public health, improve employee recruiting and retention, improve employee job satisfaction, and reduce expenses and taxes for employers and employees.
