The new program can help some workers with their parking struggles.
A new program through Capital Crossroads is hopeful to give downtown workers public transportation, at no cost to them.
Cleve Ricksecker, executive director of Capital Crossroads, says nearly 43,000 downtown workers will be eligible for a free year long bus passes through the new program.
“Private property owners of downtown are committed to raising the money for transit access for downtown employees,” Cleve Ricksecker said.
The program can launch on June 2018, but is still awaiting an approval from COTA’s board.
