Bend Research Does It All
 
When it comes to helping keep Bend a great place to live by reduce the impact vehicles have on our community, Bend Research does it all.  Employees’ bike, walk, carpool, telework, take the bus, and work compressed work weeks.  The fact is, since Commute Options and the Oregon Department of Transportation launched Drive Less Connect in September of 2011, 40 of their employees have reduced 22,762 miles by logging 4,916 days using a commute option.  That equates to 18,000 pounds of pollution kept out of the air, 896 gallons of gas not purchased, and $6,195 still in their pockets.
 
It’s these outstanding contributions and commitment that have earned Bend Research the Bend Chamber of Commerce/Commute Options Employer of the Year award.
 
Join us Monday, October 21 at 4:30 p.m. at the Bend Research Engineering facility located at 63045 Corporate Place Bend, OR 97701 to congratulate them as they receive their award.
