Washington State Ridesharing Organization (WSRO) is on the forefront of creating a better transportation future in Washington State. WSRO fosters connections between innovative ideas, proven best practices, and user friendly technologies to make a significant impact on the transportation demand management of employers and agencies throughout the Pacific Northwest. WSRO's strength resides in having a membership that is collaborative, engaged and dedicated to improving mobility throughout the region.
WSRO conferences bring together Employee Transportation Coordinators from the regions largest employers to exchange ideas and develop new solutions to achieving significant commute trip reduction. Employers work side-by-side at the conferences with staff from regional and state wide transit and regulatory agencies to form increasingly effective ways of impacting our communities for the better.
WSRO reaches across the state by producing the Wheel Options campaign, which brings education, resources, and incentive programs to employer-based commute reduction efforts regardless of how many employees an organization may have.
WSRO's education and outreach efforts support Commute Trip Reduction in every aspect of our work. The Wheel Options campaign, the Best Practices Guide for Employer-based Transportation Demand Management, our own conferences and the conferences of our affiliated membership organizations such as the Association for Commuter Transportation (ACT) provide a platform for delivering strategic and consistent information to employers, employees and state-wide residents about the benefits and necessity of significantly reducing commute trips.
There is a remarkable opportunity in front of us to create a better transportation future in Washington State. Your WSRO membership will support an organization dedicated to providing the critical resources and education needed to bring employers and agencies together in an effort to achieve the goals of commute trip reduction. Further, your membership will allow us to reach beyond those goals by joining our combined knowledge and experiences into actions that create long lasting changes in how we travel for work and pleasure in our communities and throughout our state.
