Is Your Company a New Jersey Smart Workplace?

Is your company a New Jersey Smart Workplace?

Do you go the extra mile to help your employees get to work? Do you sponsor programs that help reduce traffic and improve air quality? Do you offer high-quality commuter benefits, such as transit information, traffic alerts, free or low cost bus passes, strong telecommuting programs, carpooling matching, vanpool subsidies, or other services? Do you reward employees who walk or bike to work?

If you provide some of these opportunities, the answer might be yes. And if so, the Greater Mercer TMA encourages you to apply for the New Jersey Smart Workplaces program here: http://www.state.nj.us/transportation/commuter/njsw/application.shtm.

Qualified employers will receive awards at GMTMA’s Annual Luncheon in October 2011, but the application deadline is April 15, 2011. A NJDOT statewide press release announcing the awardees will be released in the spring.

New Jersey Smart Workplaces (NJSW) recognizes and honors organizations and individuals who help reduce traffic congestion and improve air quality by providing commuter benefits to employees. The program is a voluntary partnership of participating employers, the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT), NJ TRANSIT and the state’s Transportation Management Associations (TMA).

NJDOT recognizes participants by designating them platinum, gold, silver and bronze awardees.

Questions? Please feel free to contact GMTMA at rhersh@gmtma.org, or 609- 452-1491.
