Commute Trip Reduction
The Commute Trip Reduction (CTR) Law seeks to identify and establish commute alternatives that could reduce employee single-occupant vehicle use. Reducing single occupant vehicle use in turn will:
- Improve air quality
- Reduce traffic congestion
- Reduce the consumption of petroleum fuel
The law was adopted by the state legislature and incorporated into the Washington Clean Air Act in 1991 as RCW 70.94.521-551.
Major employers in all Washington counties with populations of over 150,000 are required to establish and implement CTR programs. (RCW 70.94.527) The WSU Spokane campus coordinates a CTR program with Spokane County.
The WSU Pullman, WSU Tri-Cities, and WSU Vancouver campuses are not required to establish CTR programs. However, University administrators at WSU Pullman, WSU Tri-Cities, and WSU Vancouver have decided to voluntarily participate in CTR goals.

Emergency Ride Home
In order to promote alternatives to commuting in single-occupant vehicles, the University supports the Emergency Ride Home program. This program provides assurance of a ride in an emergency for those who use alternative commute methods.
