Reduce energy consumption and pollution from motor vehicles by encouraging use of public transit.
Create and implement a comprehensive transportation demand management (TDM) program for the project aimed at reducing weekday peak period trips by at least 20% compared to the forecasted trip generation for the project without the TDM strategies; and fund for a minimum of two years following buildout of the project (1 point);
Provide transit passes valid for at least one year, subsidized to be half of regular price or cheaper, to each resident and employee locating within the project during the first three years of project occupancy (or longer). Publicize the fact that subsidized transit passes are available to the eligible residents and employees (1 point);
Provide transit service (with vans, shuttles, buses) to rail, ferry, or other major transit facilities and/or another major destination such as a retail or employment center, with service no less frequent than five rides per weekday peak period. The service must begin when the project is 20% occupied or sooner, and must be guaranteed for at least two years beyond project buildout (1 point). No more than 2 points can be earned under this credit.
