A Voluntary Commute Trip Reduction (CTR) Program

Help your employees get to work and improve traffic flow when you join a voluntary CTR program. A voluntary CTR program is an employer-based education and outreach program, sponsored by the Spokane County Commute Trip Reduction (CTR) Office. Building on the success of Spokane County's current employer-based transportation programs, you can join neighboring businesses already working to reduce employee solo commute trips, improve air quality and ease traffic congestion.

When you join as a voluntary CTR employer, you will be joining dozens of other voluntary employers promoting and encouraging employees to choose alternatives to driving alone. Employers experience better on time performance from their employees and improved employee morale when they use commute alternatives including riding the bus, carpooling, vanpooling, walking, bicycling, teleworking and compressed work schedules.

The voluntary CTR program guides and assists in implementing an employee transportation program at your worksite. Our objectives include:

  • Providing a wide range of tools and services - A variety of free educational and promotional materials, along with personalized assistance are available.
  • Providing promotional campaigns and special events - By agreeing to participate in CTR, you will be eligible to participate in campaigns designed to encourage your employees to use commute alternatives. Incentives may be provided along with monthly countywide prize drawings and giveaways.
  • Providing Employer networking opportunities - the CTR program provides regular opportunities to gather and share information about other employee transportation programs and issues that will improve program success.
  • Providing tools to help form carpool and vanpool groups - Using zip code and work shift information will help your employees find carpool or vanpool partners.
