Way to Go is a regional partnership between the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG) and a dedicated group of Transportation Management Associations (TMAs). We work together to reduce traffic congestion, improve air quality, and make life better for the region’s residents.
Interested in switching up your commute? Way to Go’s online trip planning tool is easy to use, secure, and free! It can help you find a carpool buddy, a new transit route, or even join a vanpool!
To implement the goals of the Partnership in our service area, Transportation Solutions is focusing on several key areas:
To reduce demand for parking and implement employee transportation benefits like RTD pass subsidies, van/carpooling programs, commute challenges, and incentives. We also offer Transportation Lunch and Learns and a quarterly Employer Newsletter.
Engage schools, neighborhoods, religious groups, and senior groups in learning about transportation alternatives and we hold quarterly Community Council meetings to bring people together around issues of transportation
Facilitate Bike to Work Day Breakfast Stations, Cherry Creek Sneak, Cherry Creek Arts Festival, Glendale Metro Mile, Try Transit events, and transportation fairs at work sites
Local Policies and Projects
Participate in policy that encourages walking, biking, and public transit, making presentations to local and regional decision-makers, and working with developers, local governments, and community groups to plan and implement infrastructure and streetscape design that improves walkability and public transit connection
In Spring 2012, Transportation Solutions joined a partnership with the Denver Regional Council of Governments and fellow transportation management organizations around the metro area to organize a regional effort to reduce the number of drive-alone commuters. Through programs like Bike to Work Day, RTD EcoPass and FlexPass, van- and carpool-matching through Way to Go and outreach to employers, community groups, and schools, this Regional TDM Partnership aims to reduce air pollution and traffic congestion, improve access to alternative modes of transportation, and encourage healthy lifestyles.
This Partnership is funded through a federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement grant. By sharing resources and pooling the proven experience and successes of the partners, this program will be an efficient and effective use of taxpayer funds. The Partnership has now launched a regional campaign, Stop Being an SOV, to create awareness of the issues that Way to Go will help solve.
