The Pima Association of Governments’ Travel Reduction Program is mandatory for employers that have more than 100 full-time equivalent employees at a single or contiguous worksite. Pima County and its municipal jurisdictions adopted travel reduction ordinances in 1988 as a travel demand strategy following a 1985 civil lawsuit (McCarthy vs. Thomas). The lawsuit demanded that the jurisdictions prepare approvable plans, containing all reasonably available control measures to attain the air quality standards at the earliest possible time in order to meet the requirements of the federal Clean Air Act. Employers with fewer than 100 employees can volunteer to participate in the program.The Community Food Bank (CFB) joined the Travel Reduction Program last year although they are not required to participate.
