TRANSPORTATION – HUBWAY SPONSORSHIP


PROJECT STORY

Putnam Investments; 1 Post Office Square

Putnam Investments, as a major tenant of One Post Office Square, partnered with Equity Office to sponsor the Hubway Bike Sharing Program. Boston is the corporate headquarters of Putnam Investments and as corporate citizens we welcomed the opportunity to support Mayor Thomas Menino’s initiative.

Putnam - Hubway

Environmental Impact

The bicycle program helps mitigate traffic around the city, equips the 92% of people who take public transportation an additional avenue to their worksites and prospective meetings, and is convenient for Boston residents and visitors to shop and eat around the city.

Cost

The cost is $50,000 over three (3) years.

Savings

There is an indirect return with brand awareness and advertising. Along with Putnam’s commitment to corporate sustainability, it is an excellent segue into our corporate wellness programs and helps to initiate social change.
