Half of 1 company takes SunRail to work

This is nice to see.: Orlando Sentinel
LONGWOOD — Commuting by rail, a routine familiar to millions of people in major cities across America, is only just developing in Central Florida, but one small firm has largely embraced it.

Dix.Hite + Partners, a landscape architecture firm near the Longwood station of SunRail, has nearly half of its 28 employees get to work using the train.
...
More than 100,000 drivers take I-4 every day on average, the busiest road in Central Florida. SunRail had only 3,200 daily riders on average this August.

Dix.Hite has opened a flexible spending account for its employees, who can now put aside pre-tax income designated toward their commute. The company also offers to pay half of the monthly commuting fees, which is typically about $40.
