BURLINGAME, CA – WeDriveU, a National Express company leading shuttle solutions for workplaces and campuses, today announced 11 customers were named Best Workplaces for Commuters and Best Universities for Commuters across more than 15 locations served by its shuttles.
The program honors U.S. employers and properties with a “National Standard of Excellence” designation for exceptional commuter benefits, such as shuttles, transit passes, vanpools, bicycling and parking cash-out options (enabling commuters to trade free parking for a cash equivalent).
