What is Georgia Commute Options?

Georgia Commute Options is a bundling of free services and incentive programs that encourage commuters and employers to make the switch from driving alone as part of a regional strategy to reduce traffic and improve air quality.  The program is funded by the Georgia DOT with funds from the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) program in an effort to attain national air quality standards.  Delivery of Georgia Commute Options services is a joint effort between the Atlanta Regional Commission and the region’s Transportation Management Associations (TMAs).  Click here to connect with the Georgia Commute Options rep for your workplace.
