3.6 Project Example #1

Action: Commute Reduction Program
Whatcom County, WA
More Info:

Several cities in the Puget Sound region have developed telework programs to incentivize employees to work from home in order to reduce commute travel. In addition, programs such as Whatcom County’s pilot “Smart Trips” have demonstrated success in supporting the use of alternatives to autos. The program encourages people through education and voluntary incentive measures to choose walking, bicycling, ridesharing, vanpooling and riding the bus. Smart Trips works with employers to develop a worksite program; individuals can also register and receive rewards such as discounts from local businesses.
