ReThink

 
The average commute to work is just over 26 minutes in the Orlando area, according to a 2012 Census Survey. Drive times may increase for some motorists during construction of the I-4 Ultimate project. Lane and ramp closures, detours and congested alternate routes may have some commuters and their employers looking for options. Many don’t know where to begin.

ReThink, a service of the Florida Department of Transportation, is Central Florida’s resource for commuter options. Programs include:

  • Ridematching – Connect with commuters to share rides to work via carpooling and vanpooling.
  • Transit training – Get help determining if SunRail, LYNX and LYMMO options could work for you.
  • Biking and walking safety – They say you never forget how to ride, but how well do you know the rules of the road? This refresher can help keep you and your co-workers safe.
  • Emergency Ride Home (ERH) – ERH is a backup plan for alternative transportation commuters that can provide up to $150 reimbursement up to four times a year, covering the expense of an emergency ride home.
  • Employer consulting services – Get help setting up commuter tax benefits, developing a telecommuter or compressed workweek programs and possibly qualify as one of the nation’s Best Workplaces for Commuters (BWC) designations.
