MeritCare Gives Employees a Green Ride

MeritCare has teamed up with Metro Area Transit (MAT) to get employees to work in a way that is better for the environment. The program provides MeritCare employees who commit to taking the bus to work a free bus pass. The program will reduce carbon emissions by reducing the number of employees driving to work and will help commuters save money. A pilot of the program has been tested with positive results.

Today, May 8, employees will get a taste of what it is like to ride a city bus during a "lunch on the bus" event. Employees will enjoy a free lunch on a MAT bus, which will take them for a ride through downtown, followed by a tour of the MAT Ground Transportation Center. There they will learn how to make bus transfers and have an opportunity to ask questions.
