Summer is the perfect time to shake up your commute. It's really easy to get stuck in a transportation rut. When you're crushed for time in the morning, it's easier to stick with the same routine than re-evaluate your commute, even when other options might serve you better. But with our great summer weather, now is the perfect time to try something new; walking, riding a bike, taking the bus, and carpooling are all great alternative travel options. Give one a try!

Summer quarter employee bus passes are good from June 25 - September 25.
