New law boosts Sonoma County commuters


Many Bay Area commuters will soon have an incentive to get out of their cars and try public transit or ridesharing services to get to work.

A new state law requires Bay Area companies with 50 or more employees to offer commuter benefits to workers, a perk that some companies have provided on their own for years.

The law, which may be the first of its kind in the nation, compels both private industry and public employers, with the threat of penalties, to help ease traffic and reduce greenhouse gases.
