Commuter Benefits Ordinance

Commuter Benefits Ordinance
Building on the success of the City of Richmond, San Francisco, and Berkeley Commuter Benefits Program, the Air District and Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) jointly adopted a regional Commuter Benefits Program. Because transportation is the largest source of air pollution in the Bay Area, and commute travel accounts for nearly half of total motor vehicles traveled on an average weekday; the use of commute modes such as public transit, ride sharing, bicycling, and walking will decrease motor vehicle travel and traffic congestion. Furthermore, such commute modes are designed to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and other air pollutants to protect public health and climate.
