How the Best Workplaces for Commuters are the Happiest Places on the Peninsula

On Thursday, March 15, 2018, CommuterLand opened its doors to 100 representatives from San Mateo County employers and transportation advocacy groups. Leading the conversation was the Best Workplaces for Commuters (BWC) Project Manager, Julie Bond. Following Julie were BWC recipients from Linkedin, Intuit, Oracle, and Genentech. Each speaker shared their company’s outstanding commuter programs and benefits to encourage others to do the same.

A special thank you to Genesis Towers for providing an amazing facility for our annual symposium.
