Commute Trip Reduction

If you work at an employer in Pierce County with 100 or more employees who work full-time and are scheduled to begin work between the hours of 6-9am, your worksite is affected by the Commute Trip Reduction Efficiency Act.
Most large worksites have an Employee Transportation Coordinator (ETC) who promotes transportation options. Your ETC can be an important resource for users of all commute options, including cycling. Not only will they have information on the various Pierce Trips campaigns and contests you are eligible for, but the ETC may also know information specific to your worksite including the location of bicycle facilities, nearby bike trails or routes and the contact information for other employees who regularly bicycle. If you are interested in encouraging your employer to provide bicycle amenities, want to know more about your employers CTR program or want to start a bike team for the annual Commuter Contest, your ETC may be able to help.

For Employers

Employers who do have a transportation program or ETC can elect to partner with Pierce Transit in order to better connect their employees to the wealth of resources offered by the Pierce Trips team and to be eligible for programs including Emergency Ride Home. Visit Pierce Trips’ Employer Services Page for more information.

Emergency Ride Home

If your employer partners with Pierce Transit and you use a non-drive alone method to get to work, you may be eligible for a free taxi ride home in case of emergency.  Visit Pierce Trips’ Emergency Ride Home page for more information or contact your employee transportation coordinator.

Pierce Trips Calendar

When you bicycle to work or use another smart commute option, log your trips at the Pierce Trips Calendar to be eligible for great prizes.
