Survey: How Do You Commute to Work?
BWH must complete an online employee commuter survey in accordance with the Massachusetts Rideshare Regulation, which supports the state’s plan to reduce air pollution. The survey requires at least 50 percent of staff to respond. BWH Security and Parking hopes to capture your travel patterns for the week of Oct. 31. All participants will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win a month’s free parking (or MBTA pass) or one of five $50 American Express gift cards. Click here to take the survey. The deadline for completion is Monday, Nov. 7.
