Tracking Progress is a recently released DVRPC publication that serves as an ongoing, outcome-based effort to align the Commission’s planning and implementation activities. It will guide the region's investment strategy to help achieve the vision and goals set forth in the long-range plan and it will help identify priority initiatives as we move forward.

Stacy Bartels, DVRPC Manager, Marketing and Commuter Services

DVRPC has a long history of providing commuter benefit services in the Delaware Valley. As of last fall, the Commission rebranded and refreshed one of its most popular services, introducing RideECO (Easy Commute Options). The program allows employers and commuters to save money by putting pre-tax dollars toward fares on public transportation. In addition to a new website (, commuters have noticed a new logo and extensive advertisements throughout the Delaware Valley. Join us at this meeting to learn about all of the resources that DVRPC makes available to individuals and organizations to ease the hassles of commuting.
