TBARTA Commuter Services

About the Organization

TBARTA Commuter Services assists travelers who live or work in the Tampa Bay region by partnering with businesses to help their employees find a better way to get to work other than driving by themselves. We work with local governments and transportation partners to build better communities that offer a wide range of transportation options, like carpool, vanpool, biking, walking, public transit, and telecommuting. TBARTA helps employers implement commute solutions, including program development, on-site events, marketing tools, and incentive programs.

About the Program

Vanpooling– Four to fifteen employees ride together and share the cost. TBARTA partners with Commute by Enterprise, which operates the vanpool program. TBARTA subsidizes the first $400 per month of the cost.

Carpooling– Our online ride-matching service makes finding someone to share the ride with fast, free, and easy.

Preferential Parking– Offering carpoolers and van poolers dedicated parking spaces close to your building encourages participation and reduces the number of spaces you need.

Transit– Public transit is an efficient, low-cost way to commute. TBARTA can help you connect with local transit systems to introduce pass programs and get service information specific to your location.

Compressed/Flex/Alternative Work Schedules– Non-traditional work schedules can reduce or even eliminate the need to physically commute to work. TBARTA can help you find the resources for setting up an effective program.

Bicycling– Biking to work reduces traffic congestion and is great exercise. With just a few accommodations it’s easy to encourage employees to give it a try.
