Commute Trip Reduction (CTR) Survey Briefing

purpose of the ctr law
Purpose of the CTR Law
  • To improve air quality, decrease traffic congestion and decrease fuel consumption.
the goal of the commute trip reduction program
The Goal of the Commute Trip Reduction Program
  • Reduce the number and length of drive-alone commute trips to major worksites by 10% between 2007 and 2011.
what does a ctr affected employer have to do
What does a CTR-affected employer have to do?
  • Appoint an Employee Transportation Coordinator (ETC)
  • Distribute information to employees
  • Implement a set of transportation management elements
  • Review and report on worksite’s progress (includes measurement of employee commute behavior biennially)
newly affected sites
Newly affected sites

Newly affected sites are required to:

  • Conduct a baseline survey within 90 days of becoming a CTR-affected worksite.
  • Submit a completed program report to the City for review and approval within 90 days of receiving results of baseline survey.
why survey now
Why Survey Now?
  • To establish baseline measure of employee commute behavior
  • To conduct required measure of employee commute behavior
survey measures trip reduction
Survey Measures Trip Reduction
  • Drive Alone rate = the number (percentage) of drive-alone commute trips.
  • Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT) per affected employee = length of drive-alone commute trips.
ctr reduction calculations
CTR Reduction Calculations
  • Drive alone rate =

Number of drive-alone commute trips

Number of potential commute trips

ctr reduction calculations1
CTR Reduction Calculations
  • Drive alone rate =

3 drive-alone commute trips

5 potential commute trips

  • Drive alone rate = 60%
what instrument are we using to survey
What Instrument Are We Using To Survey?
  • Serial numbered
  • Completed in No. 2 pencil
  • Remain flat – no staples, paper clips or labels
ctr goal measurement survey distribution
CTR Goal Measurement Survey Distribution
  • Must survey CTR-affected employees
  • May choose to survey total worksite population

Total Worksite Population

or “All”

CTR affected employees

ctr affected employees
CTR-Affected Employees
  • Work 35 or more hours in a week (Monday through Sunday)
  • Are scheduled to report to a single worksite between 6 to 9 a.m.
  • Work on two or more weekdays (Monday through Friday) each week, and
  • Are in a position intended to last

at least 12 continuous months

total worksite population
Total Worksite Population
  • all CTR-affected employees
  • all other employees on the company payroll (i.e., night shift, part time, and teleworking employees), and
  • all other persons not on the company payroll but who work at the site and are eligible to take advantage of the benefits of CTR Program (e.g.: temporary employees, cafeteria staff, janitorial staff, etc.)
ideas for a good response rate
Ideas for a Good Response Rate
  • Get “commitment statements” for those responsible for collecting surveys
  • Visibly involve management
  • Set-up competitions between departments
  • Give a small prize or food for all employees who return completed questionnaire
  • Have supervisors responsible for collecting completed surveys from employees
  • Have employees complete surveys during a meeting
if your site has made progress by reducing either your dar or vmt then
If your site has made progress by reducing either your DAR or VMT, then…
  • Submit written employer program report on due date next year
  • Continue your program at its current level (including the minimum program requirements)
  • Conduct a goal measurement survey again in two years
if your site has not made progress not reduced its dar rate or vmt then
If your site has NOT made progress (not reduced its DAR rate or VMT) then…
  • Work collaboratively with your CTR Rep and come to agreement on ways to make your program more effective (likely to achieve goal)
  • Include changes on your next employer program report
  • Conduct a goal measurement survey again in two years
baseline surveys
Baseline Surveys
  • Develop program and submit program report for review by local jurisdiction 90 days after you receive survey results
  • Implement approved program within 90 days
  • Conduct a measurement survey again in approximately 2 years
ctr reduction calculations2
CTR Reduction Calculations
  • Vehicle miles traveled (VMT) per employee =

Trips per person X Miles per trip


  • Drive-alone trips (includes one-person motorcycle and drive-on ferry trips) = 1 trip per person
  • Two-person carpool = ½ trip per person
  • Three-person carpool = 1/3 trip per person… etc… until
  • Seven or more vanpools and transit (ferry, rail, bus) = 0 trip per person
  • Non-motorized (bike, walk) or trips not made because of telecommuting or a compressed work week scheduled day off = 0 trip per person
