Through Get There, ODOT and its partners are helping shift business practices and workplace habits. It’s not trying to encourage everyone to ride a bike or take the bus, but to consider what travel options work for different trips and different days. It’s also about remote work or telework strategies and doing more business virtually. The aim is to change mindsets and behaviors to help businesses and workers alike realize the benefits of reduced costs and increased productivity among other gains.
Businesses that prioritize optimal transportation and remote work options for their employees enjoy real bottom line benefits in terms of talent recruitment and retention, productivity and reduced overhead costs. Get There aids businesses statewide by providing free resources and business consulting on how to facilitate more satisfying employee transportation experiences, which ultimately helps them cut costs.
