The objective of this study was to analyze transportation commute choices and travel options and to select one or more options that potentially reduce the use of single-occupancy vehicles (SOVs). The study focused on how changes in the transportation commute benefits of the Internal Revenue Code (IRS, 'qualified transportation fringe benefits') could assist employers in providing these benefits to employees. The study examined commute benefits currently offered to employees by their employers (transit passes) or proposed commute benefits (parking cash-out). Six scenarios were developed to explore changes to the IRC which would help shift the SOV commute mode to non-SOV modes. Information about employer-practices and transportation benefits was obtained through a national telephone survey of 603 employers, and through two regional symposia and two focus group meetings of stakeholders.
