Do you want to be greener but don’t know where to start? Here’s a good first step: take transit! Taking a bus, train, or ferry to work significantly reduces your carbon footprint. But don’t just take our word for it, give it a try! We at Commute.org can help employees easily make the switch. Here's how:

. Make sure to log your trips regularly in our STAR platform, and when an emergency arises (it happens, we know), you decide how to get home quickest. If your employees are not already covered by a similar program, we are your GRH provider for San Mateo County.
