The “Best Workplaces for Commuters” designation acknowledges employers who have excelled in implementing green commuter programs including ridesharing, transit benefits, biking and walking, teleworking, alternate work schedules and other Transportation Demand Management strategies.

Keep Calm and Carry On: Metro Riders Post Terror Scare

Federal officials arrested 34-year-old Farooque Ahmed of Ashburn, VA on Wednesday for attempting to help members of al-Qaeda plot and carry out terrorist activities against four different metro stations in the Washington D.C. area.

The stations threatened included Pentagon City, Courthouse, Arlington Cemetery and Crystal City. Yesterday afternoon I went to a few of these metro stations to get reactions from riders. Even though WMATA released a statement to “assure riders and employees that at no time was the public in danger during this investigation,” I felt a little wary myself as I went down the escalator at one of the suspected locations. The day after a metro terrorist threat can be chilling for daily metro commuters, but that doesn’t alter the way people commute. Douglas Wetzel, who grew up Ashburn, commuted to work yesterday just as he does every day, only maybe with a little more vigilance.
