Way to Go! Together Commuter Benefit Program

The purpose of Way to Go! Together is to encourage mode shift away from single-occupant vehicles (SOV); promote a healthy community in Durango; and enhance workplace wellness. SME small.JPG

Mode shift occurs when people normatively choose a sustainable mode of transportation over driving their car. The impacts on the community can include:
  • Reduced traffic congestion
  • Reduced parking issues
  • Improved community air quality
  • Improved health
  • Savings in transportation costs.
Adding activities such as walking and bicycling to daily routines has been proven to increase individual health in a number of ways, including:
  • Reduced obesity
  • Less stress
  • Reduced risk of chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, joint pain and more.
Workplace wellness can be improved when employees are encouraged to choose a more active form of transportation over driving. Benefits include:
  • Happier, higher performing staffs with less absenteeism
  • Lower healthcare costs to employers
  • Improved employee health and wellness -- fewer sick days
  • Builds camaraderie among employees.

Through Way to Go! Together the City of Durango's Multimodal team will examine the "commute-ability" of each company's location, determine where barriers may exist to transportation modes and help develop cost effective solutions to meet employees' needs through individualized commute plans. The program provides employers with options for employee incentives, as well as provides travel training for employees geared specifically to each company's location. 

Way to Go! Together provides initial surveys and evaluations which are used to identify the transportation and mobility needs for each organization, and helps create individualized commute plans for employees. 

Way to Go! Together allows organizational team leaders to create their own profiles and personalized incentive programs on the Way to Go! Club website. Each employee has their own Way to Go! Club account, accruing points and redeeming prizes as they choose. Team leaders can keep track of their organization's collective trips made, miles traveled, mode traveled and CO2 emissions saved.
