The Employee Transportation Coordinator (ETC) is an integral part of every Employee Transportation Program. At Community Transit, we offer a variety of free services designed to support the ETC and increase the success of this key person. These services include:
Community Transit offers consultation services to assist in the development of appropriate trip reduction strategies. These services include:
ORCA –One Regional Card for All– is the smart, easy way to ride the bus, train or ferry. Providing a bus pass for all your employees may be more affordable than you think. Contact our Transportation Demand Management Specialists or visit www.orcacard.biz to learn what programs are available for your worksite.
The ORCA “smart” card is accepted on seven regional transit systems (Everett Transit, Community Transit, King County Metro Transit, Kitsap Transit, Pierce Transit, Sound Transit and the Washington State Ferries).
Community Transit offers free emergency transportation to ridesharing employees who are registered with their employer's Commute Trip Reduction program. Guaranteed Ride Home (GRH) will provide up to 65 miles of free taxi service (one-way) to take you home or to the place of your emergency. GRH program provides transportation to ridesharing employees when emergencies or unforeseeable situations arise during the workday.
If you work late, get sick or miss your ride - GRH has you covered. Employers simply need to sign a Guaranteed Ride Home agreement with Community Transit to take advantage of this valuable service. Check with your Employee Transportation Coordinator or Human Resources department to see if your company offers Guaranteed Ride Home.
If your company doesn't have GRH and would like more information, contact Community Transit's Transportation Demand Management staff at ctr at commtrans dot org. We're ready to help.

Federal law now allows employers two ways to offer their employees a commute benefit free of payroll taxes: Companies can offer employees a tax-free employer-paid subsidy or a pre-tax payroll deduction (or a combination of both) to reduce an employee's cost of public transportation (bus, train, ferry or registered vanpool). The law applies when the company (or qualified third party) delivers the commute benefit to the employee in the form of a pass or voucher.
