Back ‘N’ Forth Club – For Employers

The Back ‘N’ Forth Club is a free program of SLO Regional Rideshare that assists employers in San Luis Obispo County in educating and empowering their employees to make smart commute choices by supplying them with the tools, incentives, and services they need. Email info@rideshare.org to get started!

Here is why so many employers in SLO County participate:

  • Free extension of existing HR offerings
  • Reduced parking demand, opening up spaces for customers
  • Improved employee recruitment and retention
  • Payroll tax savings
  • Measurable program impacts (e.g.: CO2 reduced, money saved, and vehicles removed from the road)
  • Reduced employee stress and health costs
  • National, regional, and local recognition for participation

Here are ways we help employers encourage smart commute choices:

  • Private iRideshare.org network to manage every aspect of your commuter benefit program (free service valued at over $500 per-year, per-employer)
  • Annual creation of a Trip Reduction Plan created with feedback from your employees
  • New hire packets that include information about your employer’s program, information about our Guaranteed Ride Home incentive, and a quick iRideshare.org tutorial
  • On-site events with food and giveaways to promote your program to your employees
  • Help with setting up: a pre-tax transit benefit under IRS code 132(f) for employee transit/vanpool costs, and policy for telework, flex scheduling, and compressed work weeks

Here are some built-in partnerships you gain access to:

  • Slime: free Bike Flat Tire Repair & Inflation Station, including bike stand for your workplace
  • BoltAbout: discounted trials and monthly costs for commuters that lease an electric bike; and discounts also apply to BoltShare, which is a shared electric bike for your workplace
  • K-Man Cyclery: 15% discount for North County program participants
