Sustainable and Environmentally-friendly Community
Before you begin making decisions on what transportation amenities to provide, determine the overall transportation needs of your residents.

GUARANTEED RIDE HOME
Knowing there’s always a ride home in case of an emergency or unscheduled overtime can bring peace of mind to your residents.
Guaranteed Ride Home (otherwise known as GRH) provides commuters who regularly (twice a week) carpool, vanpool, bike, walk, or take transit to work with a FREE and reliable ride home when one of life’s unexpected emergencies arise. goDCgo will work with you one-on-one to provide information, sign-up forms, and general assistance on all promotions and marketing of the Guaranteed Ride Home program to your residents.
The District of Columbia is not only our nation's capital, but it's also a home for many creatives. In addition to the staple Smithsonian museums, the city offers plenty of FREE must-see sites that are outdoors and easily accessible using public transportation. In all eight wards, you can find a variety of street art, sculptures, and murals beaming vibrant colors and celebrating a range of cultures, music, iconic figures, historic moments, inspirational messages, and more.
In fact, the DC Department of Public Works (DPW) created the MuralsDC initiative to help clean and beautify our nation’s capital. Since its pilot in 2007, MuralsDC has painted 133 murals across every ward of the city – that's more murals than any other entity in the District.
Although teachers, staff, and students no longer will be returning to school this month, it's important for school administrators to plan and prepare for safe commuting when students do return. We've compiled a list of ways your school administration can prepare to support the commutes of your teachers, staff, and students.
Promote Commuting with Care
No matter what form of transportation your teachers, staff, or students use, encourage them to commute with care. That includes wearing a face covering/mask, using hand sanitizer, and staying 6 feet away from other passengers when possible.
Is your workforce prepared for natural disasters like flooding, hurricanes, and earthquakes; extreme heat or cold; snow or ice storms; or pandemics like the coronavirus (COVID-19)? The public health emergency requires new levels of preparedness to stay safe, even while workers are spending more time at home. Knowing what to expect ahead of time—and what’s expected of you—goes a long way toward protecting your business and keeping employees safe.
Due to COVID-19, many organizations had to quickly adapt and allow employees to start teleworking without a formal policy in place. In fact, a growing number of employers plan to continue allowing employees to telework for the foreseeable future. Working from home may be the "new normal" moving forward. To help you better adjust, goDCgo provides complimentary assistance in developing a formal telework policy for your company as well as guidance on developing an effective transportation program for employees.
If you work nontraditional or late-night hours, you may find that you are left with fewer commute options to get to and from work. Since the public health crisis, public transit and other commonly used travel options have become even more limited in order to encourage people to stay home, practice social distancing, and ultimately protect the safety and well-being of commuters.
On Sunday, November 1 at 2am, we will depart from Daylight Savings and fall back to Eastern Standard Time. According to our friends at National Geographic, “Daylight saving time in the U.S. began in 1918 as an attempt to save energy during the throes of World War I, following Germany's earlier shift in 1916. The idea was to maximize sunlight hours during the longer days of the year by taking an hour of morning sun, when many are sleeping, and adding it to the end of the day.”
Did you know that creating a car-free or car-lite residential community can reduce housing costs for both you and your tenants? A car-free development is a residential or mixed-use property that normally provides a traffic-free environment, offers no parking or limited parking separate from the residence, and/or is designed to enable residents to live without owning a car.
Whether you're planning or currently developing a new residential building or updating an existing property, it's never too late to implement a transit-oriented strategy to help reduce vehicle use and traffic congestion in the District of Columbia. Even if you're not immediately ready to go car-free, goDCgo has outlined a range of options to help get you started with supporting a car-lite lifestyle or fully committing to going car-free.
Thank you and congratulations to all our employers and commuters who participated in the goDCgo Commuter Challenge! Participating organizations included American College of Cardiology, the American Transportation Association, Ballard Spahr LLP, the District Department of Transportation (DDOT), So Others Might Eat (SOME), Virtual Enterprise Architects, and Washington Gas. We hope everyone enjoyed the competition and was inspired to turn this challenge into a forever lifestyle.
To help reduce drive-alone traffic in the city, District zoning orders require residential buildings to provide sustainable transportation options and amenities for residents, visitors, or staff traveling to/from a property. goDCgo offers complimentary assistance to help you comply with the service requirements of your zoning order, which further supports Transportation Demand Management (TDM) best practices.
For several months, restrictions have been in place to reduce the effects of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in our community. The District government understands that it’s important for businesses and individuals to responsibly resume normal activity. The Mayor’s reopening plan allows that, phase by phase.
As more people are getting out, it's important to remember to still recreate responsibly. This means you need to wear a face covering or mask whenever you leave home and maintain six feet of distance from others to keep everyone safe.
Many gems in DC, such as national parks and memorials, allow you to remain socially distant. Go for a solo bike ride or take a walk with family or your furry friend(s) to sightsee in DC. This is the perfect time to rediscover all the city has to offer and use the amazing network of transportation options to get you there.
goDCgo is here to help schools however we can! With face-covering/mask-wearing and social distancing protocols still in place, the options outlined below are great ways goDCgo can help you promote health, wellness, and safety in your school community.
Virtual Complimentary Consultations:
We’re still here to help you virtually! Meet with School Client Services Manager Barbara Moreno one-on-one via phone or video chat to discuss how goDCgo can help you support the health and wellness of your teachers and staff while preparing for reopening. Schedule your virtual consultation today!
Telework & Distance Learning Webinars:
Since many are spending so much time working and teaching from home, it's important that your teachers and staff’s workspaces are comfortable so they can feel their best and maintain productivity. The efficiency of one’s work environment, or ergonomics, plays a major role in how employees get work done. In other words, staff should fit their workspace to meet their needs. goDCgo can help teach your teachers and staff how to set up their workspace and stay healthy and happy while distance teaching. Reach out to goDCgo to schedule a webinar for your staff.
Capital Bikeshare Memberships:
Capital Bikeshare is a great benefit to offer that can be especially helpful to your teachers and staff as they commute and run errands while practicing safe social distancing. It's also a great way to stay healthy by adding exercise into your daily routine.
Private/Charter Schools: goDCgo can help you decide if offering a Capital Bikeshare membership as a part of your commuter benefits program is right for your school's reopening plans, and help you sign up for the Capital Bikeshare’s Corporate program.
DCPS: DCPS employees automatically receive a discount on Capital Bikeshare memberships; it's $25 a year for an annual membership. goDCgo can explain how to sign up your staff and get the word out to your employees as you prepare for reopening.
