Discover services, maps and other transportation solutions from walking to vanpooling
The Energy Corridor District has launched a new Commuter Solutions section at energycorridor.org as a resource for people ready to explore alternative ways to get to and from work, like vanpooling, carpooling, public transit, walking and bicycling.
Wondering if you can leave your vehicle at home – along with wear-and-tear expenses, not to mention the stress of driving through rush hour traffic? Vanpooling or carpooling could be an answer. On the Commuter Solutions section, you can read more about METRO Star vans, find a list of vanpools serving The Energy Corridor, or learn about NuRide, an online ride-matching database designed to match up carpool partners.
Once you’ve investigated shared rides on The District’s website, it’s time to explore CarShare, The District’s program that provides vehicles for alternative commuters who need to go someplace during work, for whatever reason. CarShare takes the worry out of leaving your car at home. And that can make carpooling a reality for many Energy Corridor commuters.
If you’ve never taken a bus to work in The Energy Corridor, Commuter Solutions can hook you up with a METRO trip planner and bus riding tips.
Maybe you’d like to get a healthy benefit out of your commute. Check out the Commuter Solutions Bike/Walk section where you can find vetted cycling routes and a link to sign up for Bike Buddies to commute with.
“There are transportation options for The Energy Corridor that are healthier and eco-friendly, while helping to reduce traffic congestion,” explains Kelly Rector, transportation coordinator for The Energy Corridor District. “We hope to provide a resource so commuters can discover which options work best for them. Ultimately, it is about improving quality of life in The Energy Corridor.”
