Did you know that the city of Burbank will pay you to bike to work? Have you heard about community college students flocking to low-cost transit with their new institutional TAP program? What about California's parking cash-out law?

The Coalition for Clean Air's recently released report, "Getting to work: Your clean air commute," is a guide for employers, workers and policymakers in order to provide smarter transportation benefits to our workforce. CCA surveyed large employers in Los Angeles County, reviewed literature and consulted with transportation demand management (TDM) experts to compile their findings.

The report highlights best practices for employers to promote bicycling, carpooling, parking management, telework, transit, vanpooling and walking. It concludes with a series of policy recommendations, including:

· Expanding employer-based transit passes

· Expanding use of parking cash-out

· Improving work site transfer policies to allow employees to more easily switch to workplaces closer to home
