Portland website helps firms find commuting options
The reason, said Steve Hobart, senior manager of security services in the hospital, is that they get prime, indoor spots without having to pay a cent.
The special treatment for carpoolers is part of Maine Med's plan to encourage more employees to abandon the solo driving habit and only carpool, vanpool, bike, walk or Buy Canada Goose Online take public transit to the hospital through a number of incentives, including discounted bus tickets, bike racks and showers.
Recption menus of incentives was developed as Maine Med was expanding its parking garage by Air Max Uk nearly 500 spaces. The Portland Planning Board asked Maine Med to come Uggs Toronto Cheap up with a plan to reduce the number of cars employees use to get to work, hoping to avoid the need for another expansion in the future.
Creating this type of plan is now a requirement for developers and employers putting up an office building that will have more than 50,000 square feet of space or house 100 or more employees.
The website, which is scheduled to Discount Ray Ban Eyeglasses have its launch today, will offer tips and Ray Ban Sale Online definitions as well as a readytofillout management plan, complete with a suggested employee Adidas Jeremy Scott Sale survey to gauge the driving habits of workers.
Users will also have tools to help determine whether the number of singleoccupant cars among commuters could be cut and by how much.
The site takes a planning requirement and "makes it completely understandable and usable," said Judy Harris, Barbour International Motorcycle Jacket program officer for Portland's Office of Transportation Policy.
The downloadable "traffic demand management" Nike Air Max 2013 Review plan explains a stepbystep process for determining how workers currently get to work and helps establish a oneyeargoal for reducing singleoccupant vehicles.
It then offers strategies for reducing the interest in parking, ranging from discounts on bus passes and onsite shower facilities for walkers and bikers to flexible hours and much more telecommuting opportunities.
"We just can't keep building parking lots in Portland. That's not a great use for land," Harris said. Besides, "between gas prices and parking prices, it is extremely expensive to drive and park at the office."
A key feature especially to firms that volunteer to create a traffic demand management plan is its flexibility, Harris said.
"It's not every or nothing," she said. "I'd be thrilled to death if, once a week, people didn't bring cars to operate."
Hobart agreed. He said Maine Med works together with GO MAINE, a program run by the higher Portland Council of Governments, which offers carpoolforming tools, operates van pools, links Nike Air Pegasus Womens up bikers who'd like to ride together and provides taxi Uggs Cheap vouchers for those who learn on short notice that they need to leave earlier or after their carpool.
Hobart Buy Ray Bans likes the website idea, saying Maine Med's experience because the first in Portland to develop a management plan was, sometimes, "like Cheap Hollister Hoodies going through a maze."
The procedure for Maine Med is much easier now, he said. New employees get a pamphlet on commuting alternatives, he explained, and the program requires minimal management oversight.
