Dollar Dollar Bills Ya’ll—DC Passes Parking Cash Out Law

Just last week, the DC Council voted unanimously to pass a flexible commuter benefits law. This is a landmark bill that will pave the path for commuter benefits equity in the city and, hopefully, set provide a blueprint for more cities to follow suit.

According to the Coalition for Smarter Growth (CSG), “This action addresses today’s commuter benefits which don’t match commuter preferences. Most DC residents don’t drive to work. Instead, they bike, walk, or take transit. In fact, 18% of DC residents walk or bicycle to work, 37% take transit, and only 34% drive alone.”
