The N.C. Department of Transportation has been designated as a Best Workplace for Commuters. The department offers both flexible work hour schedules and compressed work week schedules. Currently, through the GoPass Program, employees who work in the Raleigh area can ride the City of Raleigh transit system, Capital Area Transit (CAT); and the Regional transit system, Triangle Transit, free of charge. Additionally, employees who vanpool to the downtown Raleigh area are entitled to a $15 per month fare subsidy and NCDOT provides priority parking for vanpools close to the building entrances. Employees also have access to an on-line rideshare matching service that provides an instantaneous match list of individuals who may be potential rideshare partners.
NCDOT also provides funding assistance to Transportation Demand Management Programs across the state and participates in the annual SmartCommute Challenge.
