Public Transportation - Commute Trip Reduction Grants

WSDOT's Public Transportation Division provides Commute Trip Reduction Grants to 20 local jurisdictions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and keep the busiest commute routes flowing. Local jurisdictions work with employers, who develop and manage their own programs based on locally adopted goals. These programs help more commuters ride transit, carpool, vanpool, walk, bicycle and telework. 

These grants support more than 1,000 worksites and more than 500,000 workers statewide. These workers left about 22,000 cars at home every weekday and outperformed the state and national averages for options other than driving alone. Eligible jurisdictions and the funding formula were determined by the state's Transportation Demand Technical Committee (also known as the Commute Trip Reduction Board) in consultation with other stakeholders.
