To help our members understand the opportunities in the legislation, the Association for Commuter Transportation (ACT) has developed this resource which highlights a short list of programs that ACT has identified as top opportunities for states, local governments, and TDM programs to target in their efforts to create efficient, multimodal transportation systems that benefit all people, reduce congestion, and improve air quality while providing a better journey for everyone.
In a world where more workers and employers are seeing the benefits of teleworking in the wake of the pandemic, many organizations have started to implement hybrid workplace strategies to provide more flexible options to employees. This resource lays out a menu of options that can be used to create the best hybrid work model that fits your organization's needs.
Developed by ACT's Telework Council.
Your company can use hoteling software to coordinate the safe use of desks and meeting spaces when your teams return to the workplace. The question is, which software do you use? This guide can help you find an answer. Use it to compare leading software in terms of features, COVID-19 support, price, and integrations.
Created by ACT's Telework Council in partnership with UrbanTrans North America.
UrbanTrans conducted a survey of TMAs in 2019 to advance industry research. The survey was conducted in partnership with the ACT TMA council. The survey results are intended to provide reliable and impartial information regarding the organization and operations of TMAs. The results can be used by individual TMAs to assess how their organizations compare with others. The survey includes information on the organizational structures, staffing, financing, membership, services, and evaluation methods of almost 100 TMAs.
The global pandemic brought on by the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has had profound impacts on business operations. With public health authorities recommending physical distancing to reduce the spread of the virus, businesses across all sectors implemented emergency measures to protect their employees’ health and adhere to local laws. For many businesses, this meant a complete closure of onsite operations and shifting employees from their worksites to their home, while a wide range of essential workers continued commuting. As communities move forward with reopening their worksites, employees and employers will again need to address the challenge of commuting to and from work. This document, developed by a team of ACT members and TDM professionals, provides employers, providers, and commuters with recommendations for managing different commute options.
While teleworking had been one of the fastest growing modes of commuting before the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) many organizations found themselves unprepared to support work from home options for employees. As state and local governments rolled out “stay at home” or “shelter in place” advisories, many organizations had to rapidly assess internal capacity for long-term telework implementation with only a few days’ notice. The Association for Commuter Transportation’s (ACT) Telework Council worked quickly to develop a webinar to provide key recommendations for organizations to put in place quick-response telework programs along with tips to support their employees who were not accustomed to teleworking.
