Full Membership Meeting recap (March 2024)

During the March 2024 Full Membership Meeting we provided our members with committee updates, followed by an outstanding presentation by the Connecticut Rides and Connecticut Transit.

Our members learned about environmentally friendly transportation methods that reduce our carbon footprint and promote healthier living. Choosing sustainable modes of transportation, such as public transit, carpooling, or biking, we can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions within our state.

The presentation shared cost savings, initiatives, and exciting ways our Connecticut Federal employees (and their families) can benefit from these great initiatives.

For example, did you know CTrides provides employers with a no-cost, dedicated consultant who will give you the tools to easily and quickly improve productivity, health, and savings for your workforce – while receiving tax and savings benefits for your company?

Also, did you know about the CTrides Emergency Ride Home (ERH) Program?

The CTrides Emergency Ride Home (ERH) Program is a service provided by the Connecticut Department of Transportation for employees who work in Connecticut and who regularly use a qualified greener commute to work. If an unexpected emergency arises, the ERH Program will reimburse commuters who meet the guidelines below for their trip up to four (4) times a year.

This includes:

  • Worksite assessments to help your employees with their commuting challenges

  • A customized transportation demand management plan

  • On-site programs like parking management, carpool and vanpool formation events, lunch and learns, and more

Our presentation concluded with a live demo of the CTrides trip planning tool where we can identify different green commuting options available as part of the various programs (ride share, rail, bus, and more!).
