About the Program

Encouraging individuals to use existing transportation infrastructure more efficiently by using alternative transportation methods can be one of the most cost-effective mobility investments that an entity can partake in. These alternative transportation methods include carpooling, vanpooling, taking transit, telecommuting, walking, and biking. The Triangle Transportation Choices program, a Transportation Demand Management (TDM) program, is a marketing and outreach effort that helps to promote alternative transportation in parts or all of seven counties in the Triangle region of central North Carolina: Wake, Durham, Orange, Chatham, Franklin, Johnston, and Granville.  

Through the program, Central Pines hopes to reduce commuter reliance on single-occupancy vehicles and help encourage residents to be healthier and more sustainable. Our organization has served as the Program administrator since its beginning in 2008.

Connecting the Dots

The program seamlessly links NC state policy and funding with local and regional service providers, while drawing from the Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) developed jointly by CAMPO and DCHC MPO for the Triangle region and NCDOTs TDM Strategic Plan to ensure statewide continuity.

Good For You, Good for the Community

Best Workplaces for Commuters (BWC) is a national recognition program, administered by the Center for Urban Transportation. Businesses and organizations that provide benefits, establish policy, and encourage their employees to use alternative modes of transportation (biking, carpool, transit, etc.) during their commutes can receive designation of this investment.

CPRC has administered the region's Best Workplaces for Commuters (BWC) Program since 2013, providing assistance to employers interested in adding commuter benefits or beginning the BWC application process. 

Program Goals
  1. Decrease the number of single-occupancy vehicles at peak commuting times to decrease traffic congestion and greenhouse gas emissions.
  2. Assist employers in creating an alternative commute-friendly workplace.
  3. Support the region’s workforce by increasing employee access to flexible and sustainable commute options.
  4. Ensure BWC program membership is attainable for all businesses and organizations, regardless of their size, and increase membership opportunities for BIPOC and women-owned businesses.

Commute Friendly NC is a statewide recognition program that designates employers who actively maintain benefits, policy, and programs that incentivize their employees to take advantage of alternative commuting opportunities.  

This program provides a simple and easy-to-use platform to recognize and celebrate the leadership of all those North Carolina businesses and organizations, who are taking valuable steps to shift single occupancy transportation trips to healthier, greener, zero to low-cost, and sustainable commute alternatives such as vanpool, carpool, transit, telework, biking, walking and flex work week.
