Transportation Demand Management Program

Contact Information

Car Pool SignSince 1991, the State of Washington and the City of Renton have laws for commute trip reduction (CTR) requiring employers with 100 or more regular employees who arrive to work weekdays between the hours of 6 and 9 a.m. to have transportation benefit programs for their workforce.

The aim is to reduce commute trips made by single occupancy vehicles (SOV) and encourage commuters to take other means of transportation to work, such as carpooling or vanpooling, taking transit (buses and trains), or if possible, bicycling or walking. This improves air quality, reduces fuel consumption and reduces congestion on local and regional roads during commute hours. This program funds staffing to administrate, review, and approve affected Renton employers' CTR programs and provide training to employers' designated transportation coordinators.

King County Metro Transit has information for employers.

Schedule

This is an ongoing program.

Budget

$65,000 a year is programmed through 2017. It is expected CTR technical assistance to employers will continue at current levels in future years provided state funding supporting this program continues.

Renton receives a state allotment every two years (adjusted on an annual basis) to help fund the CTR program. Historically, the actual amount of state funding has been determined by the number of CTR-affected worksites within Renton (base funding) and the number of trips reduced the prior year (performance allocation).
