Safe Commute Guide helps employers get commuters to work safely

In partnership with RideKC, the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce and the Full Employment Council, MARC has launched the Safe Commute Guide to help employers and commuters get to work safely during COVID-19.

As the region continues to balance the economic rebound and public health concerns during COVID-19, safe, accessible employer commute and telecommute practices remain critical to business continuity and resilience.

A supplement to the Safe Return KC Guide, the Safe Commute Guide empowers employers with tools, templates and resources to develop safe commute policies and practices.

The guide features an evaluation of each of the Kansas City area’s transportation options, addressing COVID-19 safety, reliability and cost-effectiveness as key concerns for employers and commuters alike.

In addition, the guide features local resources and best practices to help businesses and their commuters stay connected to transportation solutions. The guide can be found at MARC.org, or on the PrepareMetroKC website.

For questions about safe commute practices or to inquire about the guide, contact Natalie Phillips with the RideshareKC program at nphillips@marc.org.
