Commuter benefits and programs
Your business or property can benefit through vanpool transportation and other sustainable transportation programs.
At Oakland Apartments they get it—transportation is a crucial piece of the puzzle in the lives of their staff and residents.

This year, they stepped up as a Platinum level Champion and have been instrumental in the success of transportation programs and initiatives that extend beyond their property lines.

On a surprisingly gorgeous morning in Northern Virginia, Arlington Transportation Partners raced to our Rosslyn office for the fourth annual Amazing Commute Race. Like last year, we chose to start in Fairfax to replicate the most likely commute of our client base, this time starting in Reston to purposefully travel along I-66 with the new toll lanes. We'd like to note that our race started at 7 a.m., but perhaps a better and more realistic start time for many would be 7:30 a.m. We'll make that update in the fifth annual Amazing Commute Race in 2019!
