On January 31, 2019, Best Workplaces for Commuters (BWC) released the annual list of U.S.-based employers who meet the program’s National Standard of Excellence. The list includes companies like Whole Foods Market, Ernst & Young, LLP, Logistics Management Institute (LMI), Lyft, Mayo Clinic, Merck & Company, Inc., NCR Corporation, Netflix, Oracle USA, The Bicycle Chain, Tyson Foods and YouTube, along with universities such as Yale University, Duke University and Ringling College of Art and Design. The list also includes Best SITES, such as Stanford Research Park, Thompson’s Point and South San Francisco Business Center. The 2019 list of employers receive national recognition for offering exceptional commuter benefits to more than 1 million employees.

“Being designated as one of the Best Workplaces for Commuters is more than just a title; it means an employer is standing behind its commitment to provide employees with access to progressive commuter programs, like discounted transit passes, bicycle-friendly amenities, and rideshare solutions,” said Julie Bond, Program Manager for Best Workplaces for Commuters. “Making such a commitment has its perks. Besides being a leader in the nation’s evolving transportation landscape, these employers are better able to recruit and retain talent, save on overhead costs, and be more environmentally sustainable.”
