Bauer's IT expands executive-style commuter service

Posted on October 13, 2009

[IMAGE]Bauers-Wi-Drive-full.jpg[/IMAGE]Bay Area-based provider of chauffeured, eco-friendly individual and group transportation, Bauer's IT (Intelligent Transportation), announced Monday that two new routes have been added to its Wi-Drive! program.

Beginning Monday, October 12, the eco-transit commuter service began including round-trip routes between Santa Rosa and San Francisco and between Fremont and Milpitas.

Bauer's Wi-Drive! operates Monday through Friday from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. Fares can be as low as $5 for a one-way ticket depending on location, with 10 percent discounts offered for monthly passes. Wi-Drive! memberships and individual passes can be purchased online. A variety of payment methods, including commuter checks, are available.

Launched in March 2009, Bauer's Wi-Drive! offers riders an attractive alternative to driving, thereby relieving traffic congestion, minimizing pollution, and contributing to a carbon-neutral footprint for the Bay Area and beyond.

Each 52-person vehicle eliminates 2.6 million pounds of carbon dioxide (CO2) per year and giving individuals who may have never considered choosing group transit a viable and eco-friendly solution.

The fleet is equipped with plush leather seats with Corian work tables, high-speed Wi-Fi, flat-screen LCD monitors, iPod hookups, phone and laptop power ports, CD and DVD systems, bike racks and restrooms. A Ride Host is onboard at all times to offer food and drink service, which can be purchased onboard or pre-ordered through the Bauer`s Wi Drive! online ordering system.

Bauer's Wi-Drive! also serves as an appealing option for employees who benefit from San Francisco's Commuter Benefits Ordinance. Enacted in January 2009, in correspondence with Federal Ordinance 132, the mandate requires all employers with more than 20 employees who work an average of 10 hours a week to offer one of three commuter benefits programs in order to relieve traffic congestion and reduce air pollution. The three program options include Pre-tax Transit, Employer Paid Transit Benefits, and Employer Provided Transit. Participating employers save up to nine percent on payroll taxes, while employees save up to 40 percent on transit costs, including parking fees, fuel costs and bridge tolls.
