You Hold the Key, SC! Banner Image Mass Transit

Evaluate the mass transit opportunities in your area. Work with the local mass transit provider to establish convenient stops if none are available. A flexible work schedule may be necessary for an employee to take advantage of using mass transit depending on schedules and considering possible delays.

Encourage participation by providing information on mass transit routes and opportunities. This can be done through a local magazine or newspaper, community newsletter, emails, internet forums and blogs, schools, or word of mouth.

Raise awareness with employers and employees on the health and environmental benefits of reducing mobile source emissions. Work with a local transit authority to offer free or reduced-price rides on Ozone Action Days.
