Encourage more working from home
There are probably many people who could easily work from home, but employers seem strangely reluctant to agree for there staff to do so. If this were encouraged and promted by the council, it would quite simply take commuters off the road, since fewer people would need to go out to go to work. Likewise, encouraging companies to allow flexible working hours and staggering the start time of their work force would reduce the 'rush hour'.
Why the contribution is important
Surely anything to reduce the amount of traffic on the roads at peak time would help. This is not a difficult idea to achieve, but it would require more flexibility from employers.
