For some of our employees, driving their own car may feel like the only option. Check out the Cost of Commuting Calculator(XLSX, 42KB) to see if it's time to make the switch to transit, or check out the different ride options below. Charsharing or a carpool may be a viable option. In any case, here are some resources for your drive to work. 

Getting Started

Pick Your Ride

Drive Your Own Car

For some of our employees, driving their own car may feel like the only option. Check out the Cost of Commuting Calculator to see if it's time to make the switch to transit. If you still feel your only option is driving alone in your vehicle, continue to see what resources are available to you.

Drive a Carsharing Car

Carsharing is a type of car rental designed to be convenient for people who want to use cars for short periods of times and only pay for their usage.

With Car2Go, our employees get free membership and $15 credit when they use the promo code "Den2017" when they sign up here.

Join a Carpool

When you carpool you’ll spend half as much on your daily commute and maintenance costs even if you carpool with just one other person. Way to Go offers a registry where you can find a carpool for your commute. 

Rent a City Vehicle

Our employees may rent a city vehicle for half-day and full-day rentals to conduct city business. City rental vehicles are not intended for commutes to work and home. But by having the option to rent a city vehicle, our employees may be able to commute using another means such as biking or taking transit.

Park Your Car

Park Your Own Car

Our employee parking permits at city-owned facilities in the downtown area are very limited at times. All our employee parking facilities are currently occupied and wait-lists are in place at most locations. Our employees can get on the wait-lists and get pricing on the our intranet site.

Curbside & Parking keeps a list of nearby “non-city” parking facilities in the downtown area. If you want a copy of this resource list, contact Curbside & Parking.

Park Your Carshare

Car2Go, and other carsharing services, offer parking downtown for free.

Pay for Parking

City-Owned Parking Facilities

Prices vary depending on parking garage or lot. Our employees pay pre-tax for city-owned parking through their paycheck. No need to set up an account or write a check each month.

Non-City Owned Parking Facilities

Our employees can contribute to a flexible spending account (FSA) to have pre-tax money deducted from their paycheck to cover the cost of parking while at work. Their parking FSA can begin, end, increase or decrease the parking amount at any time.


Ready to Make the Switch?

Taking transit, riding your bike, or taking a mode other than a single occupancy vehicle won't leave you stranded at work. You may be able to rent a city vehicle to get to that meeting across town, walk to local restaurants or coffee shops during your breaks, or use MS Teams to connect with a co-worker in another building. Chat with co-workers who use transit and other means and see what else could work for you too.
