The Compact held its first educational event, “Commuter Benefits Innovation: Collaborating to Expand Employee Choices,” in December 2016. Organized by MIT and the City of Cambridge, this Year 1 work plan event discussed the challenges and potential solutions in providing sustainable transportation options in Cambridge .

The City of Cambridge provided an analysis on commuting trends and the shift in modes of transport used in the city. MIT discussed how employers can reframe the economics of commuter choices to further incentivize sustainable commuting, including their new AccessMIT program, its implementation challenges and lessons learned.
