Drive Less. Save More.
As many as 85% of chain store employees commute past closer company locations. It's a hardship for them and their company and dramatically increases traffic congestion.
One retailer, in one city, can reduce traffic by 12 million miles and CO2 by 6500 tons in just one year. What if they all did?

How We Do It
Workforce Commute Optimization
We identify those at greatest risk of commute related turnover. By optimizing those commutes, and relocating workers to closer stores, companies retain their more experienced workers and save on recruiting, hiring and training costs. They also increase employee engagement and morale while reducing absenteeism and tardiness; all of which yields increased productivity and better customer service.
The opportunity is bigger than you think and can impact us all.
Retail, Restaurant & Hospitality
There are nearly 40 million retail, restaurant and hospitality workers in the US. Most of them live closer to 3 or more company locations than the one where they work. We match employees by position, with closer store locations. It's a huge benefit to them with an immediate positive impact to the community and the bottom line.
In most cities, banks operate dozens of branches. As a customer, we go to the closest branch. Their tellers aren't so lucky. One study shows they have an average of 10 closer locations. By using Commute Matters' commute optimization technology, banks can allow more employees to work closer to home and save millions in turnover costs while offering better customer service.
Cities worldwide have prioritized solving traffic congestion and the impact on air quality. While ridesharing and mass transit help some, what if commuters didn't have to travel as far to work? Commute Matters can reduce most commutes to 5 miles or less, reducing millions of miles of traffic on our roads, and making it easier for employees to bike, walk, or use public transportation.
