BP13: Alternative Transportation

Official language

Purpose

To reduce greenhouse gas emissions, air pollution, and the adverse effects of land development caused by the use of automobiles.

 

Objective

Create and implement a comprehensive alternative transportation program that reduces the need for building occupants to use their automobiles.

Submittal Requirements

BIT Building:

  • Snapshots or copies of the communications pieces used and date(s) issued.
  • Documentation of implementing any short-term (one year or less) and/or long-term (more than one year) alternative transportation initiatives (this may be an excerpt from the annual sustainability planning meeting).

Implementation Guidance

BIT Building:

  1. At least once per year, communicate available transportation options to all building occupants and users. These options might include: shuttle services, electric vehicle charging stations, carshare, rideshare, bikeshare, gyms/changing/shower facilities, and public transit (such as express buses).

BIT for Tenants:

  1. Same as BIT Building.

BIT Building:

  1. Annually evaluate the feasibility of additional clean transportation amenities and opportunities to increase usage. Complete the “Alternative Transportation Feasibility Assessment” below, or use your own assessment form if preferable.
