Silverado Stages has teamed up with various businesses throughout California to make commuting to work convenient and affordable for employees through the Corporate Commuting program. Organizations can increase employee productivity and morale, be recognized as good corporate citizens and benefit the environment. There are many reasons businesses should consider participating in the program.
Corporate Commuting is an easy-to-use program that allows forward-thinking employers to help their employees travel to and from work with ease. Plus, it lowers commuting costs, reduces traffic congestion, and improves California’s air quality.
Attract and retain good employees
Transit benefits enhance your company’s overall benefits package to help you attract and retain good employees. Given the cost of hiring and re-training employees, this low-cost benefit could easily pay for itself. And, bus passes are a benefit employees can use every day.
Reduce parking needs
Encouraging group transit increases parking spaces for customers at your business.
Increase employee productivity
Riding the bus to work means employees arrive relaxed and ready for the day.
Enhance your organization’s image
Companies that help reduce traffic congestion are seen as highly desired organizations and good community neighbors.
Earn a tax deduction
Recent changes to the tax code permit employers who pay for any part of an employee’s bus pass to structure their payment to reduce payroll taxes. And, there are no IRS reporting requirements. Check with your tax adviser to determine tax benefit eligibility and rules.
