Alternative Transportation Incentive Program

Nearly a year ago, Dr. Deininger and the Division of Hematology Administration announced a Division Commuter Incentive Program to encourage faculty and staff to take alternative modes of transportation to work apart from vehicle driving. The goals were to promote employee health and make our contribution to lowering our carbon footprint. Seventeen Division employees completed the survey to participate and in the course of this past year, the group of participants amassed a grand total of 22,496 miles of alternative commuting (UTA bus/train, walking & cycling). Included in the Incentive Program was a drawing held monthly to select monthly commuter winners and three grand prize awardees who amassed the most number of trips over the year. The number of monthly commuter trips has held quite constant during the past year among participants. The goal is now to expand the number of participants and to model this to a larger Health Sciences Program.
