ROCHESTER, Minn. - Getting to work might be getting a little easier in Rochester.
That's because the city launched a new program Tuesday called Arrive Rochester.
Its plan is to get people to work more efficiently - by either carpooling, public transit, walking, or biking.
The program will work with different employers in the city to offer tools for their workers. It will help commuters plan trips, find carpool partners, and even earn incentives for trying new ways to work.
Adam Arnold is the program manager for Arrive Rochester. He said this will help the growing community in the future, by making downtown more accessible.
"How do we use what we have a little better? How do we make more efficient use of our roads by carpooling? How do we get more people using transit, cycling, and walking, to really accommodate that growth as we go forward," Arnold said.
This is the first transportation management association to be launched out of the Twin Cities metro area.
