Workplace: A Greener Commute

Your trip to the office takes a serious toll on your nerves. But it doesn't have to take a toll on the environment. This week, the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Transportation release their annual list of Best Workplaces for Commuters (see starting Wednesday morning), a ranking of companies that provide good incentives for workers to leave their cars at home. Past winners, like Intel and Cisco Systems, offer benefits like transit passes, generous telecommuting options and on-site amenities like bike storage, an ATM or a dry cleaner to reduce daily car trips. Currently, only 5 percent of workers get such benefits. To find out about setting up a program at your office, visit . Happy trails.
