For residents and commuters through Maryland, a large number of programs, services, and events exist to help reduce the impact of commuting.
Commuter Choice Maryland is a state funded program that provides incentives to encourage people to reduce the impact of their commute. Reducing the number of people commuting also reduces the amount of emissions, congestion, and accidents. The program provides tax incentives for employers to encourage decreased automobile use for employees and offers a guaranteed ride home for commuters so they are not dependent on a car in case of an emergency.
For more information on the program, check www.commuterchoicemaryland.com. A summary of program benefits and results is available here.
