Pierce County’s Commute Trip Reduction program, Pierce Trips, recently announced the City of Gig Harbor as one of the county's Best Commuter Businesses of 2022.
This designation recognizes Gig Harbor’s commitment to reducing car congestion, fuel consumption, and air and water pollution in our region. This was accomplished through providing commuter benefits to our employees, engaging with our employees to promote sustainable transportation options, and successfully reducing the number of employees driving to work alone.
The City of Gig Harbor is one of 25 employers across Pierce County to receive this award in 2022. Since the program’s inception, Pierce Trips’ Best Commuter Business leadership program has recognized over 30 unique employers and over 65 worksites across Pierce County with a bronze, silver, or gold level designation.
Pierce Trips works with local jurisdictions, employers, and schools to develop transportation solutions through programming and marketing strategies. The Best Commuter Business leadership program recognizes employers’ efforts to reduce drive-alone rates and provides employers with a roadmap to improve their commuter benefits. Strong commuter benefits attract and retain top talent, reduce employee parking demand, and demonstrate environmental responsibility. Supporting sustainable transportation options also assists with employers’ equity efforts and aids the local economy.
