Program rewards locals for taking alternate commutes

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) – The average Birmingham commuter wastes 32 hours per year sitting in traffic, but one Birmingham company is working to change that!

CommuteSmart is a program dedicated to reducing traffic congestion and improving air quality. Instead of driving to and from work alone, they want commuters to take alternatives. Some of those include riding a bike, walking, carpooling, vanpooling, transit and working from home.

They also offer some incentives. CommuteSmart has a starter program that allows you to get paid per day for the first 90 days, up to $70. After that, you will qualify for a $25 gift card every 90 days.
