For more than a decade, Scripps Health has teamed with the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) to offer workers incentives to use alternative commuting options, such as buses, trollies, ridesharing and bicycles to reduce the number of single-driver cars — and the carbon that they emit — from local roads.

In a recent inewsource article about these efforts in the region, Scripps Director of Work Life Services Helen Neppes, who oversees the organization’s commuter incentive program, said incentives offered by Scripps and SANDAG benefit employees as well as the community.
