Bellevue Transportation Management Program (TMP) Report

Buildings in Bellevue with TMP requirements are required to observe certain practices and undertake activities so as to reduce the impact of the property on the transportation system.  The TMP agreement runs for the life of the property and requires the property manager/owner to take measures to encourage workers at the site to commute to work in ways other than driving alone.

The City of Bellevue has partnered with King County Metro's Commute Trip Reduction Services group to monitor the TMP programs.  In the fall of every odd-number year (2015, 2017, 2019), property managers are required to prepare a Program Report (251KB PDF) and submit it for review.  The Program Report provides a way to report on strategies and program elements you use to promote commute alternatives to tenants.  Once submitted, the Program Report is reviewed for its completeness, its inclusion of mandatory program elements, and the likelihood it will result in trip reduction.

If applicable, worksites are also required to submit a copy of their Program Summary with their Program Report.  A Program Summary is a document, usually a flyer or brochure, which describes your commute program to tenants.  It should be distributed to all tenants at least once each year and to new tenants as they move in.  A building internet or intranet page describing your program may also be distributed in lieu of a paper document.

Also if applicable, submit a copy of the Lease Language which obligates the tenant to participate in periodic commute surveys required by the City of Bellevue.
