DENVER, May 18, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- WeDriveU, Inc., the leader in corporate transportation solutions, is proud to announce SendGrid has been named the 2017 “Way to Go” Employer Champion for its employee shuttle program powered by WeDriveU.

Presented annually by the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG), Way to Go Champions demonstrate leadership in promoting or advocating commute options other than driving alone. The program aims to reduce traffic congestion, improve air quality and enhance the health of Denver residents with commute options, including carpooling, vanpooling, transit, biking and walking.

“This award celebrates the innovative efforts and commitment to offering employee commute choices demonstrated by SendGrid and WeDriveU,” said Steve Erickson, Communications Director at DRCOG. “By offering this service, they’re not only making life better for commuters within their organization, but for the region as a whole.”

In 2016, SendGrid and WeDriveU launched Colorado’s first WiFi-enabled employer-sponsored Residential Bus Service. SendGrid’s shuttles connect employees in Boulder and Longmont with its new global headquarters at 1801 California Street in downtown Denver.

“SendGrid’s WiFi shuttle bus enables us to recruit from both Denver and Boulder in an innovative and productive way that is critical to our 4H culture of being happy, humble, hungry and honest,” says Scott Heimes, Chief Marketing Officer at SendGrid. “The buses allow our employees that live in Boulder and Longmont to continue working on the bus but get home in time to make it to school functions, spend time with their friends and families and unplug in the evening. We’ve seen employees engaging in both personal and professional conversations and having team and cross-functional meetings to discuss anything from 2017 planning to budget reviews.”

“WeDriveU is proud to partner with SendGrid on commute alternatives that alleviate parking demand, relieve traffic congestion and promote sustainability,” said Dennis Carlson, CEO, WeDriveU. “We join DRCOG in congratulating SendGrid on creating a thriving workplace for commuters that is making a positive impact throughout the region.”
