Orlando, Fla. – July 13, 2016 – PlanSource announced today that it has won the top employer award in the second annual Go DTO: Downtown Orlando Commute Challenge, hosted by the Florida Department of Transportation’s reThink Your Commute program.
The GO DTO Challenge involved dozens of companies and thousands of participants in the Orlando area, who competed in a number of commuter-related challenges. Participants logged their trips to work at GoDTO.org to earn points and prizes, unlock specialty badges, such as “SunRail Track Star” and a special “Biked with Buddy” badge unlocked by participating in the city’s 18th annual Bike to Work Day on Friday, May 5, 2017.
Factors that led to PlanSource winning the top employer award included:
- PlanSource had a large team participate – 62 employees joined in
- Hosted an information session about local commute options for employees
- Participated in and won the Go DTO Scavenger Hunt
- Gained extra points by subsidizing transit for employees
- Development of a telecommute policy for PlanSource employees
Technology played a large role in this year’s challenge, specifically through a collaboration with ride share apps RideFlag and Strava. To assist with the formation of new carpool groups, commuters downloaded the free mobile app, RideFlag. Active commuters who biked or walked to work used Strava to track their distance and speed, then synced their commute trips to the Go DTO platform.
As part of their award celebration, PlanSource will host a breakfast with Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer on Thursday, July 13.
PlanSource was recently named a best workplace for commuters by U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Department of Transportation.
