ECRP

ECRP

The Employee Commute Reduction Program (ECRP) was designed to reduce actual employee trips to the workplace.

Employers must instigate a number of workplace incentives to meet compliance such as carpooling, vanpooling, telecommuting, compressed workweeks, reduced staffing as well as encouraging employees to walk, bicycle or take public transit to work. The ECRP requires prior AQMD approval and certification and is measured annually by surveying the individual employees of the firm. The ECRP is not an ideal solution for many firms as it can require a great deal of employee effort and administration throughout the year. However, employers who survey and maintain an average vehicle ridership (AVR) above 1.1 will gain credit toward Rule 2202 compliance.
