In the final video of a new three-part animated series, Pioneer Institute explores how the MBTA’s commuter benefit program called Perq saves you money, lowers your tax burden, and shortens your commute – all while helping the planet.
As the video shows, Boston has the worst commuter gridlock in the nation. By using Perq, commuters can help the Bay State fulfill its commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions 25 percent by 2020. Each person who shifts from driving to riding the T decreases Massachusetts’ annual CO2 emissions by 2.6 tons. Companies looking to participate in the program can visit the MBTA’s Perq website: https://perq.mbta.com/.
