• Commute Matters

    Drive Less. Save More.

    Location Matters

    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.

    Commute Costs

    Workers with long commutes are more likely to quit because of it.  We reduce 

    commutes an average of 10 miles, resulting in 5 to 10% lower turnover.

    Commute Matters

                                                         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.

  • Market Opportunity

    The opportunity is bigger than you think and can impact us all.

    Retail, Restaurant & Hospitality

    There are over 26M retail,     food and hospitality workers    in the US. Most of these workers live closer to 3 to 6 other 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.

    Financial Services

    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 are looking for solutions to 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 between 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.
