In an effort to reduce commuting hassles for state employees and improve customer service, Gov. Nathan Deal has initiated the Georgia CommuteSmart program. The initiative encourages the expanded use of commute options and flexible work schedules to help you avoid traffic.
Having more options to get to and from work each day means saving more money on gas and car expenses, while also avoiding the stress and time wasted sitting in traffic.
The Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) has been partnering with The Clean Air Campaign to deliver commute options programs since 2011. Since January 2012, participating DPH employees have already saved substantially and eliminated 124.47 tons of pollution from the air by using commute alternatives.
