CTR is a Washington state law that requires employers with 100 or more employees to develop programs that encourage their employees to use alternatives to driving alone for their commute. The Washington State Legislature passed the original CTR law in 1991 in an effort to reduce traffic congestion, reduce energy use and alleviate air pollution. The law was recently updated with the passage of the CTR Efficiency ACT in 2006. Read more about Washington State’s Commute Trip Reduction Law.
The CTR laws applies to all employers, including public (i.e., federal, state and local governments, and military) and private, which have 100 or more “affected” employees who work at a single worksite. “Affected employees” are those employees who:
The CTR law also applies to local jurisdictions (cities and counties) where an affected employer is located, as well as all state agencies - even if they have fewer than 100 affected employees.
Worksites with fewer than 100 employees can participate in the CTR program voluntarily. Community Transit also offers a small employer program.
Each CTR affected or voluntary worksite has set goals to achieve in reducing drive alone rate and employee vehicle miles traveled. After conducting a baseline survey, your worksite’s goals will be to reduce 10% of your current drive alone rate and 13% of your employee vehicle miles traveled within a four year period.
Employers must make a good faith effort to develop and implement a CTR program. This means, at minimum, doing the following:
Some of the additional strategies that may be implemented at the worksite include a variety of program elements such as:
Commute programs can be added to your benefit package at little cost to you and your company can profit from these programs. Employees who rideshare are absent and tardy less often, and are usually more productive. Demand for parking can be reduced. And, an Employee Transportation Program can actually enhance your community and employee relations. Community Transit offers several programs in support of your efforts, so contact Community Transit’s Transportation Demand Management Specialists today to get started.
