Who is affected by the CTR Law?

The CTR law applies to both public and private employers that have 100 or more employees who work at a single worksite, and who begin work between 6 and 9 a.m. on two or more weekdays for at least 12 continuous months. This applies only to counties defined with “Urban Growth Areas” (currently Clark, King, Kitsap, Pierce, Snohomish, Spokane, Thurston, Whatcom and Yakima). The law also includes local jurisdictions (i.e., cities) where an affected employer is located, as well as all state agencies, even if they have fewer than 100 affected employees.

Is your company affected by the CTR Law?

Do you have 100 or more employees at a single worksite who:

  •      Schedule to begin their workday between 6:00am and 9:00am?
  •      Work at least 35 hours per week?
  •    Work at least two days a week (M-F) in positions intended to last 12 months or more?

If you answered, "Yes," to these questions, your worksite is likely affected by the CTR Law. 

If you answered, "No," to any of those questions, but would still like your employer to participate, Commute Smart Northwest provides free support, information and marketing materials for building a Commute Smart program.

If you just want to participate as an individual commuter, please create a commute calendar profile using the worksite passcode “PFGX” to log your trips and be eligible for prize drawings.
