Come Learn About How Transit Affects YOUR Business!
In the Atlanta Regional Commission’s 2015 “Metro Atlanta Speaks” public opinion survey, 27 % of respondents said transportation was the biggest problem facing the region, the second consecutive year transportation topped the list of concerns. In that same survey, 91 % of respondents said improving public transit is “very important” or “somewhat important” to Atlanta’s future.
So, what does this mean for you and your business? How can transit options help your employees be more productive? How can you use transit benefits as an incentive to recruit and retain employees?
