[email protected] is a flexible commuting arrangement. Our goal is to make commuting into work both more affordable and with less environmental impact.

Every year, each commuter in the Commonwealth produces 62 pounds of carbon monoxide, 9 pounds of hydrocarbons, and 5 pounds of nitrogen oxides, according to the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP). Cars, trucks, and buses produce approximately 40 percent of all air pollutants. In an attempt to reduce pollution caused by motor vehicles, Simmons would like to encourage alternative commuting choices such as carpooling and park-share options.

In this arrangement, employees have two (2) flexible commuting options:

  • One Car Option (Commute Together Every Day): Employees can drive in together in one vehicle and park that vehicle in the Simmons Garage, or
  • Two Car Option (Commute Separately, Divide the Days): Employees can drive separately in different vehicles, dividing work days as needed.

With either option, the garage will only recognized one parked car, per day. Each employee can use their own Simmons ID badge to gain access to the garage. Once the system registers entry with the employees id badge, another car cannot be parked, until the first car leaves.


  • No more than two (2) Simmons employees in a carpooling arrangement.
  • Student workers are not eligible to participate in this program.
  • The applicable monthly parking fee will be split 50/50 between employees.
  • The applicable monthly parking fee will be banded per each employee’s salary band.
  • Deductions for the monthly parking fee will be taken on the first and second pay period of the month.
  • No parking in the garage from 12:00 AM until 5:00 AM. (No overnight parking).
  • Termination of the arrangement can be made by any member of the carpooling arrangement, at the end of any calendar month in accordance with the cancellation policy below.
  • Notice of termination of the agreement must made to Benefits & Payroll 30 days in advance in order for deductions to be adjusted accordingly.
  • If notice is not provided to B&P 30 days in advance, the arrangement will either continue for the subsequent month or in the event of departure or termination one of the members of the arrangement, the other will be responsible for the full month’s deduction.
