Transportation leads to 40% of Oregon’s carbon emissions. You can help significantly reduce vehicle miles traveled by increasing active forms of transportation — walking, bicycling and taking transit — which produces both employee health and economic benefits. Plus, commute benefits are tax-free for your employees and your business.
