New website
Although this site remains active, the Commute Trip Reduction Board has a new home on the web, so please join us there for the latest CTR-related news and events. Sign up at the new site and interact with board members, partners and peers.

Helping employers encourage workers to share a ride, take a bus or train, ride a bike or use other transportation that reduces the number vehicles on our state's busiest roads was the essence of the state Legislature's CTR Act in 1991. Since then Washington's roadways have been flowing smoothly with more than 28,000 fewer vehicles every weekday morning. Programs created by the CTR Board focus on removing trips by encouraging local jurisdictions and large employers to develop plans that motivate employees to commute in ways other than driving alone.

The mission of the CTR Board is to demonstrate and inspire leadership, enhancing transportation choices that improve quality of life for people in Washington State in partnership with local communities.

The vision of the CTR board is to be a recognized leader that inspires effective approaches to managing traffic congestion, conserving energy and improving air quality to meet climate challenges.
