Steps to promoting your CTR program

The CTR Law requires the following promotional activities:

  1. Post the ETC’s name and contact information in a visible location.
  2. Develop and distribute the CTR Program Summary to CTR-affected employees at least once each year (twice each year in the City of Seattle) and to new employees at the time of hire.

Additionally, you should:

  1. Distribute or post other relevant commute information on a regular basis
  2. Check to see if your local CTR ordinance has additional promotional requirements
  3. Check your approved program to see if your company has committed to conducting additional promotions.
