Vail Valley teachers to get paid for walking, biking to work
Vail, CO Colorado
VAIL VALLEY, Colorado – The Eagle County School District will start an incentive program this year for employees who either bicycle or walk to work in Colorado’s Vail Valley.
The Bike and Hike Commuter Program was created to recognize and entice employees who take better care of themselves and their community, officials said. If employees commute to work more than 66 percent of their work days each month, pollution free, they will receive $20 a month per employee.
“Now is the time to save money and our environment by simply riding or hiking to work,” said Jason Glass, the school district’s director of human resources.
The program will be available to employees August through November and April through July. The program is not offered in December through March due to frequent adverse weather.
