Commute Trip Reduction (CTR) Program

The Commute Trip Reduction began in 1991, when it was added to the Washington Clean Air Act. The law directs local jurisdictions to work with major employers to reduce the impacts of employee commuting. The goals of the program are to improve air quality, reduce traffic congestion and reduce gas usage. From the beginning, the CTR law called for state government (including higher education) to take a leadership role in the program.
