Wells + Associates strives to find new ways for commuters and residents to get to and from work. It’s all about more transportation choices for more people. But for one week each year, forget those lofty transportation goals – we just want to win the flipping Big Green Commute.
Today, in the lead-up to next week’s 2017 Big Green Commute competition, we are pleased to announce another transportation option for our employees: a new Star Trek Transporter Room. To our Romulan competitors: Eat your heart out!!
Going Galactic Green
“For us, ‘going green’ was not enough. ‘Going galactic green’ is more like it,” stated company president Michael J. Workosky. “We believe our new Transporter Room will not only give our team members a new option to compete in the Big Green Commute, but will add to their commuting options throughout the year.”

In the greater Washington, DC metropolitan area, where from our offices we serve our inter-galactic (well, nationwide for now) clients, both time and distance can be commuting challenges for hundreds of thousands. That’s why our Transporter’s 40,000-kilometer transmission range was crucial in meeting the needs of our employees.
Of course, it is common knowledge that the transporter was invented in the early 22nd century by Dr. Emory Erickson, who also became the first human to be successfully transported. However, our crack transportation engineering and planning team discovered that the secrets to this technology had unwittingly been made available during Admiral Kirk and crew’s travel through time back in 1986. The lesson? If you’re Scotty, head of engineering, be careful to hold on to your tech secrets when you are trading the formula for transparent aluminum in exchange for a whale tank.
“Whether they are commuting from Waldorf, Reston, or Rigel IV, we think this will improve employee productivity and morale,” explained Will Johnson, a veteran transportation engineer in our Manassas office. “For commuters from Rigel IV or even Kotara Barath, that would still require a two-step multi-modal commute, with a warp-speed ride to Venus putting them in close-enough range with Earth to allow us to give the Transporter a go.”
As far as we are concerned: we’ll do anything to live long and prosper. And win the Big Green Commute.
