YNHH offers employees several commuter benefit options and alternatives to single-occupancy vehicle use, including 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.

Yale New Haven Hospital offers employees several commuter benefit options, including:

  • Free CTTRANSIT (BUS) monthly passes to any employees (in lieu of a parking spot)
  • Commuter Train subsidy up to $100 per month to employees who leave their cars at home (in lieu of a parking spot)
  • Free YNHH operated commuter bus system
  • Carpooling program
  • Walk and Bike to work programs

  • Emergency Ride Home program

“Yale New Haven Hospital is one of the top employers in the nation offering high level commuter benefits to their employees,” said Julie Bond, program manager, Best Workplaces for Commuters. “Yale New Haven Hospital made the list because they offer transportation choices that include the above referenced programs and provides its employees the support they need to get to and from work and be at their best before, during and after their workday.”
