In the Atlanta Regional Commission’s 2015 “Metro Atlanta Speaks” public opinion survey, 27% of respondents said transportation was the biggest problem facing the region, the second consecutive year transportation topped the list of concerns. In that same survey, 91% of respondents said improving public transit is “very important” or “somewhat important” to Atlanta’s future.
So, what does this mean for you and your business? How can transit options help your employees be more productive? How can you use transit benefits as an incentive to recruit and retain employees?
You’re invited to a unique breakfast and learning opportunity on this topic this coming Friday, December 11 from 8:30-10:30 a.m. at One Atlantic Center – 1201 West Peachtree Street NE, Atlanta, GA 30309 in the Concourse Level Conference Center.
A range of partners has come together to share ideas at this event about the importance of transit to the region. A dynamic panel of local employers will discuss their perspectives on the importance of transit; information will be shared about transit benefits and tools available to employers; and you will learn more about development plans around stations and upcoming campaigns for transit funding.
