At Your Service
Telecommuting is a flexible work option that enables employees to work from home or other off-site locations for all or a portion of the workweek. Telecommute Connecticut, a CTrides program, is a free and comprehensive resource for employers assisting with the design, development and implementation of telecommuting programs.
CTrides also can help you implement other flexible work schedules, such as compressed work weeks that allow employees to work longer hours on some days in exchange for additional days off.
Commuter Tax Benefits (www.commutertaxbenefit.org)
You can increase your employees' take-home pay without increasing your payroll! Federal tax law allows commuters to get a monthly pre-tax transportation benefit by setting aside money each month to pay for transit and vanpool fares. You save on your payroll taxes and your employees lower their taxable income... it's a win-win! CTrides representatives are available to assist employers in developing and administering the program.

Here's How You Can Be A Commuter Friendly Workplace
How can you encourage your employees to learn more about the advantages of alternative transportation choices, and consider changing the drive-to-work-alone habit? Carpooling, vanpooling, train, bus and telecommuting-each offers convenience, cost-saving and environmental selling points. But often something "extra" is needed to convince a commuter to make a change. Research proves that an employer's supportive attitude is often the most effective motivating force to convince employees to try other ways to get to work.
For a more productive and happier workforce, help your employees reduce the stress and cost of their daily commute by contacting a CTrides Representative:
