PITTSBURGH, PA â€” The CommuteInfo program has redesigned and enhanced its website to assist regional commuters and employers find a better way to work.Â As gas prices continue to surpass $2.50 per gallon, many of us are looking for ways to save some money. Â Alternatives to driving alone, like carpooling, using public transit or biking to work, are just a few ways to lower the commuting bill.Â
To assist those looking for alternatives to driving alone, the CommuteInfo program provides resources for commuters, employers, job seekers, the media and people just interested in learning more about commuting alternatives. With the help of customer feedback, the CommuteInfo website (www.CommuteInfo.org) has been redesigned and relaunched to provide easier access to all of the resources the site contains. Most information can now be accessed by "one-click."
Visit the updated site at www.commuteinfo.org, learn more about commuting alternatives and even take advantage of the Commute Cost Calculator to estimate how much can be saved by sharing a ride!
