Description

In April, 2015, City Manager Marc Ott implemented the Employee Commute Reduction Program by directing all City of Austin departments to reduce employee commuting during peak periods by 20 percent. This can be accomplished by teleworking, working alternative hours, working condensed schedules, and reducing single occupancy trips during peak hours. By collecting baseline data regarding employees’ schedules and commute habits, it was determined that nearly 74% of ARR’s possible on peak commutes were already reduced by travelling off peak periods, using alternative schedules, teleworking, or by utilizing alternative transportation. Austin Resource Recovery wanted to do even more and responded to the City Manager’s initiative by implementing alternative work schedules for its administrative employees and encouraging reduction of single occupancy trips by utilizing public transportation, carpooling, and the vanpool program.
