WHAT TRIP REDUCTION PROGRAMS AND STRATEGIES DON'T CONSIDER. THE CITY OF SEATTLE'S EXPERIENCE IN DEVELOPING AN EMPLOYEE COMMUTE TRIP REDUCTION PROGRAM

Trip reduction, demand management, and transportation management programs are accepted travel demand management tools. Development and implementation of these programs in a highly unionized environment--as most cities are--can also be a labor relations challenge, due, mainly to the constraints of collective bargaining agreements and managerial trepidation. The City of Seattle viewed this challenge as an opportunity to bring management representatives and the labor unions representing the City's 10,000 employees in early-on, which paved the way for a successful program development process that is continuing. In July 1991, the Washington State legislature passed into law transportation demand management requirements for all of the jurisdictions in eight counties.
