Trip Reduction Program for Gilbert Public Schools

Find a partner for carpooling, vanpooling, biking or using bus and light rail!

Gilbert Public Schools has designed an incentive program that benefits our employees/driving age students who are interested in participating or are using alternative modes of transportation and single occupant driving reduction. The incentive program which can be found on our webpage at ShareTheRide! includes:

 

  • Alternative modes partners and/or ride share matching.
  • Monthly District Contest drawings
  • Valley Metro contests and drawings
  • Carpool parking for active carpoolers
  • Useful links regarding air quality and alternative modes of transportation


Our goal is to educate our employees and students about clean air and encourage everyone to help prevent pollution.

In 1988 the Omnibus Clean Air Act was passed, among other pollution control strategies, this act included mandatory emissions testing, use of oxygenated fuels and the mandatory Trip Reduction Program.

The purpose for the Maricopa County Sir Quality and Trip Reduction Program is to help reduce single occupant commutes to and from work by educating and promoting trip reduction. To comply with the program Gilbert Public Schools has implemented its own program to help get the information needed to the employees, as well as give incentive to participate in reducing congestion. This starts with what we do best education.

Air Pollution is a year round concern in the Valley, there are three primary types, which include Ozone in the summer and carbon monoxide and particle matter in the winter.

Due to the growing concern we may have with Air Pollution, along with periodic news alerts, Valley Metro has established a High Pollution Advisory program to let individuals know when the pollutants have become hazardous. (For more information regarding the Trip Reduction Program or to sign up for High Pollution Advisory alerts go to www.valleymetro.org.

Current information regarding Gilbert Public Schools Trip Reduction Program can be found at your local TRP bulletin board. For more information or questions about TRP, please contact your local representative or e-mail the district coordinator
