12 small businesses in Ada County will be helping promote smart transportation thanks to ACHD Commuteride's Workspace Mobility Grants and support provided by the City of Boise.

With support from the City of Boise, the Commuteride Workspace Mobility Grant is providing up to $30,000 in financial assistance to small businesses or organizations in Ada County (with 200 or fewer employees). Each recipient will receive up to $3,000 that can be used for facility improvements, such as bike parking, bike repair stands, carpool signage, or lockers. Funds can also be used for mobility improvements, such as shared bikes for employees, transit passes or vanpool vouchers.

"Whether it's for new bikes for employee bike share programs, transit passes, bike parking solutions, or other mobility improvements, we're excited to offer this program to support organizations interested in improving transportation options for their employees and customers." 

"I applaud the businesses taking steps to improve their smart mobility options," said ACHD Commission President Mary May. "After the success of the first round of grants, we are glad to be able to provide more small businesses with resources to help them encourage smart transportation choices in Ada County."
