Employee Traffic Reduction Program (ETRP) Listening Session for Northern Colorado Employers

In response to legislation passed in 2019 which mandates reductions to Greenhouse Gas Emissions (GHG), the state’s Air Pollution Control Division, has proposed a mandatory program, Employee Traffic Reduction Program (ETRP), under which all employers with 100 or more workers must reduce the number of single-occupant vehicles on our roads. Proposed strategies include ridesharing, transit use, remote work, flex-scheduling and parking management. As currently proposed, employers would need to demonstrate at least 25% of their workforce participate in trip reduction methods by January 1, 2023. The rate accelerates to 40% by January 1, 2025.

This listening session has been set up for Northern Colorado employers to engage in conversation with the State and share thoughts on how this could effect your business

The Northern Colorado Legislative Alliance is tracking this issue and have assembled additional information and resources here.

When registering please note participant information will be shared with the presenters.
