A brief description of the employee educators program (2nd program):

In addition to financial incentives for carpooling, including Zipcar credits and free one-day parking passes, the Hoosier Commuter Club (facilitated by IU's Transportation Demand Manager and Transportation Working Group) offers targeted transportation education to members. Members are enrolled in a bimonthly newsletter that highlights members and gives tips and tricks, are invited to the Transportation Working Group and other TDM events including Healthy IU Fair, and are invited to a peer-led Bike to Work Day. Members are invited via their address on file, so that they can meet active commuters in their neighborhoods in a peer ride-along.
