How Commuter Choice Maryland
Benefits Businesses
The state is projected to add one million more residents and 300,000 additional jobs by 2040, an expected increase of 30 percent in vehicle miles traveled. And while transportation congestion can present challenges for everyone in Maryland, including businesses trying to attract and retain top level talent, companies can help ease the stress of employees’ commutes by knowing about the commuter options available to them. The Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) has made great strides in expanding and enhancing the delivery of workplace commuter benefits, assistance services, and resources to employers.
