Cut the Congestion is a one-year grant program that is being offered to local businesses by Commute Smart Northwest. This community-based outreach program aims to help businesses develop commute smart programs to encourage employees to ride transit, bicycle, carpool, vanpool or walk to work. These programs are designed to reduce traffic congestion, improve air quality and optimize mobility for goods and services. Businesses offering commute smart programs can benefit by experiencing a reduction in employee absenteeism, an increase in employee productivity and the ability to recruit and retain the best employees.
Commute Smart Northwest can help your business create a commute smart program to meet the unique needs of your business while giving your employees a better work/life balance. For more information visit CommuteSmartNW.org or call 509-477-7169. (OTO)
