Commute Options actively promotes walking, bicycling, carpooling, teleworking, and using public transportation to create livable communities and enhance the quality of life in Central and Eastern Oregon for 30 years. During this time we have developed programing to increase the number of people walking, rolling and driving less in our communities we serve. Beyond reducing vehicle miles traveled, we educate and encourage the next generation to choose smart transportation options that creates a cleaner and healthier environment. Most notably, we work with large employers to help reduce their carbon emissions by offering a rewards program for employees who choose carpooling or active transportation. Over the 18 counties we serve, our programs support individual wellness, a clean environment, and a strong economy.
