You have the power to make the difference! goDCgo encourages you to commute smarter, not harder. Make the choice to walk, bike, scoot, or take public transit instead of driving alone.
As the weather continues to get colder, commuters who typically walk, bike, or take public transportation may be tempted to start driving to work. However, it's still possible to maintain your workplace's sustainability goals even through this shift in commuting habits. We've compiled a list of tips and tricks to help you reduce your driving employees' carbon footprints by creating a carpool-friendly workplace.
Biking is a wonderful mode of sustainable transportation that offers commuters fresh air and exercise while getting around the District. With over 100 miles of bike lines provided throughout the city, DC is committed more and more every year in getting residents and visitors on two wheels.
As the DC Parking Cashout Law reporting deadline (January 15, 2024) approaches, many District employers have chosen their compliance option and are beginning the reporting process. This can be a daunting task for those who have never reported before, which is why we’ve created a comprehensive overview on how to get started and how to report for each compliance option.
With the DC Parking Cashout Law reporting deadline approaching on January 15, 2024, employers across the District are asking: do I need to report my compliance this year? To make this confusing time easier, we’ve put together a quiz to answer that question based on your company situation.
Do you drive your child to and from school every day? Are you tired of waiting in long lines for pickup/dropoff? Now that students have settled into the hustle and bustle of the new school year, it’s the perfect time to explore a new way to get your kids to school: Carpooling.

In honor of this year’s Telework Week DC (March 6-10) that kicked off the month, we’re celebrating Telework in all of its forms including fully remote workers and those on a hybrid schedule. Although most DC employers aren’t fully remote, at least 35% of employers in the District are shifting to a hybrid policy. The hybrid model may be the best of both worlds for employers, employees, and the city, but it does present its own challenges.
With the January 2023 DC Parking Cashout reporting deadline in the rearview mirror, it’s time for employers to start preparing for what’s to come. The next step for employers varies based on which compliance option your organization chose. To help you navigate your next steps, we’ve outlined below what you need to do over the next year for each compliance option and exemption, and for those organizations that missed the deadline.
In honor of Black History Month, we’re highlighting Black-owned restaurants within the District and the ways you can get to them sustainably. Maybe you already have your favorites or are looking to try something new; either way, enjoying delightful cuisine at these restaurants is an opportunity to explore and indulge. It’s an excellent opportunity to celebrate Black History Month, and by traveling sustainably, it can have a lasting impact on our environment and communities. We hope you continue to explore Black-owned restaurants and businesses, not just in February but all year long.
