What is ETRP?

ETRP is a potential new regulation in Colorado that would require certain employers to reduce their commuting emissions by shifting commuters out of single-occupancy vehicles (SOV).

Who is impacted?

Any employer or organization in the Denver Front Range with at least 100 employees reporting to a single worksite. The exact SOV rate you need to hit will depend on where your worksite is located.

Why should I care?

Because air quality and climate change is only getting worse. ETRP will help put a system in place to solve this. Plus, employees are happier and healthier when their commutes are better.

TDM Calculator

Meeting compliance for the ETRP regulation doesn’t have to be a complicated process. Start identifying Transportation Demand Management (TDM) programs you could implement at your worksites in our calculator below.

How to use the TDM Calculator:

1. Indicate your compliance zone by using the dropdown on the right to identify your worksite as Business Core (Downtown Denver/Boulder), Non-Rural (suburban), or Rural.

2. Explore the SOV rate goals you need to hit in 2023 and 2025 by toggling the between years in the box on the right.

3. Add TDM programs to your toolbox by clicking Add under the programs you're interested in exploring.

4. See your expected SOV rate change as you add and remove programs.

5. Interested in diving in deeper? Register for Commutifi's free platform to survey your employees and see where you stand today. Then use the built-in TDM Calculator in your new dashboard to add programs you need to reach your goals.

Frequently asked questions

What does ETRP stand for?

Employee Traffic Reduction Program. Colorado's pending Employee Traffic Reduction Program (ETRP) - if passed - will go into effect starting January 1, 2022 for all large employers in the Denver Front Range region.

Does this relate to me?

The rule will impact any employer in the Denver Front Range with over 100 employees reporting to a single site.

Do I need to do anything?

Not yet. But if the rule is passed this August, you will have to register your ETRP-impacted sites by January 1, 2022.

Am I already in compliance? How do I find out?

You might be! Based on your compliance zone, you only need to achieve a 65-80% SOV rate by July 2023. That means that between 20% and 35% of your employees need to get to work by anything other than driving alone in a gas-powered car. (Even electric vehicles and working from home count!)

Unsure if your organization meets this threshold? Talk to a Commutifi commute specialist today to get a baseline report.

What are the compliance zones and how does this impact me?

Each worksite will be categorized into one of three compliance zones based on the type of development around the site. Based on the compliance zone your worksite falls into, you will have to achieve a different SOV rate by 2023 (everyone still has to achieve 60% by 2025).

- Urban Core (e.g. Downtown Denver/Boulder): 65% SOV rate by 2023
- Non-Rural (e.g. Denver suburbs): 75% SOV rate by 2023
- Rural (e.g. rural Colorado communities): 80% SOV rate by 2023

Test out the TDM Calculator to see how you can achieve your SOV rate goals based on the compliance zone you fall into.

*An official map will be released shortly.

How do I comply?

There are 5 main tasks you need to complete:

1. Register your organization with the State by January 1, 2022.
2. Meet your indicated SOV rate by July 1, 2023 and 60% by July 1, 2025.
3. Survey your employees every year between January 1 and March 31.
4. Create an ETRP plan to meet SOV goals and name an employee transportation coordinator (ETC).
5. Submit survey results and ETRP plans by July 1 each year.
