Employer Assistance: In addition to promoting commute options such as vanpooling and riding the bus, there are tools and strategies that can improve your transportation program and make it more attractive to employees. See our Employer Assistance (pdf) document.
The Employer Information Form is your starting point for adding an employee transportation program at your worksite. Simply complete the form and return to Community Transit. Our Transportation Demand Management Specialists will contact you to craft a program that best fits you and your employees transportation needs.
Peer Advisory Board: The Peer Advisory Board is a representative committee of Employee Transportation Coordinators who work on special projects and serve in an advisory capacity to other Employee Transportation Coordinators and Community Transit’s Transportation Demand Management Specialists. Learn more here.
Survey: Surveys are completed every two years. They can be done either via paper or electronically. For the paper version contact Community Transit’s Transportation Demand Management staff. For the electronic version, click here.
Promotional Materials: Businesses in Snohomish County and the City of Bothell with an employee transportation program have a full complement of materials available to encourage an alternative commute. Best of all, it’s free.
Sample Policy and Registration: Employers with an employee transportation program are encouraged to have their employees register for their program. The Sample Policy and Registration Form can be modified to suit your worksite's needs.
Annual report: Annual Reports are required once a year to provide information to the jurisdiction on how your program is progressing. Annual reports are completed online at www.ctrsurvey.org/annualreport. Bothell employer reports are due October 1. All others are due Dec. 15.
Each jurisdiction has an ordinance governing employee transportation programs for worksites with 100 or more employees or worksites that participate in the program voluntarily.

Best Workplaces for Commuters: Best Workplaces for Commuters is a nationwide program for recognizing worksites that provide outstanding commuter benefits. Their website also provides a wealth of employee transportation program information.
Center for Urban Transportation Research: The National Center for Transit Research (NCTR) is located at the University of South Florida. This USDOT-funded project includes information about alternatives to driving alone and telework programs to meet the congestion, air quality, and mobility challenges facing our communities. This website is a valuable resource for Employee Transportation Programs.
International Telework Association and Council: This website contains information about International telework programs.
Washington State Department of Transportation Website: A variety of resources and information are available on the WSDOT web site.
