ATP Takeaway: Commute66 will be featuring a blog series on parking cash out programs. In this blog you will receive an introduction into parking cash outs, where to learn more, and what you can expect from this blog series in the future.

The teams at Commute66 and Arlington Transportation Partners (ATP) are working together to bring commuters, employers, residential properties, and commercial properties information on the numerous benefits everyone can experience when an employer implements transit benefits.




What is a Parking Cash Out?

A parking cash out is a benefit employers can provide to their employees who choose to opt out of the parking benefit offered, give up their parking space, and choose to commute another way such as vanpool, carpool, biking, walking, or public transit. Studies have shown that providing employees with the choice of driving alone or receiving a parking cash out, many will choose to receive a parking cash out.

Mitigate parking management issues

Parking cash outs are one of the most effective ways to mitigate parking management issues caused by a shortage of parking or a growing demand for more. Currently, the demand for parking is expected to grow as more offices take on a hybrid work model. As we continue to respond accordingly to COVID-19, employers should provide these benefits to their employees as it is known to encourage flexibility and resiliency within the workforce, help redistribute parking spaces, and promote equity amongst their employees.
