Tired of driving alone in your car? Commute Solutions is a regional, voluntary trip reduction program, promoting transportation options, such as carpools, vanpools, transit, bicycling and walking. There is also information on work schedule alternatives like flextime, compressed work weeks and teleworking. Commute Solutions is your one-stop shop for commuter resources and the website includes a commute cost calculator, regional bike maps and more!
In addition, the program offers myCommuteSolutions, which is a carpool matching and trip-planning tool. You can search for bike routes, plan a transit trip and log your commute. The myCommuteSolutions site has an easy tracking system through the commute calendar, which enables users to follow their cost savings, calories burned, fuel saved and pollution reduction. A key feature of myCommuteSolutions is the ability to set up custom sites for businesses and employees can search for carpool buddies within their organization. This is available to both individuals and businesses at no cost.
The Commute Solutions program is housed under the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO) and serves Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Travis and Williamson counties. For more information and to explore your options, please visit www.commutesolutions.com.
