Employee Transit Pass Program Cooper, Sarah; Dwivedi, Anvesha; Araneta, Matthew; Bockhold, Marcus


UBC aims to promote sustainable travel as part of their environmental goals. After the success of the student U-Pass program, UBC is interested in evaluating the costs-benefits of a potential institutionally subsidized Employee Transit Pass Program. Therefore, the purpose of this project is to identify an optimal subsidy amount, its subsequent change in transit ridership and highlight the potential costs and benefits for UBC.
