Traffic Demand Management
The use of personal vehicles is one of the largest contributors to greenhouse gas emissions. Yale-New Haven's Traffic Demand Management program has been responsible increasing commuting options, thereby decreasing employee car usage.
YNHH offers community options for employees
YNHH encourages numerous alternatives for employees seeking to leave the highway behind. These include a free shuttle service with commuter lot dropoffs, dry bicycle storage, special parking for carpoolers, monthly passes for CT Transit, telecommuting and special incentives for those who use alternate commuting.
YNHH recognized for alternative transportation options
In 2013, 2014 and 2015, the Best Workplaces for Commuters program has awarded Yale-New Haven Hospital for being among the top 25 organizations nationwide offering employees alternative transportation options.
Best Workplaces recognizes employers that meet or exceed the national standard of excellence in commuter benefits created by the National Center for Transit Research and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
YNHH’s Transportation Demand Management program offers alternatives to single-occupancy vehicle use, with shuttle services, public transportation subsidies, car- and van-pooling and other alternatives. The program helps address parking challenges; demonstrates environmental excellence by reducing gasoline demand, greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution; and exhibits corporate citizenship.

YNHH pays a subsidy towards the cost of monthly train and bus passes. Payroll deductions for transit fees are pre-tax.
