GreenTRIP is an innovative certification program that rewards multi-family, mixed-use projects that apply comprehensive strategies to reduce traffic and greenhouse gas emissions. Projects meeting GreenTRIP certification criteria provide appropriate amounts of parking and incentives for new residents to drive less and own fewer vehicles. By creating less driving and using less land for parking spaces, there’s space freed up for services, shops and more affordable homes.
As people move into GreenTRIP-certified developments, we are predicting impressive environmental and social outcomes including dramatically fewer miles of driving per day than the regional average, lower car ownership rates, and a new definition of affordable living that bring families savings on car ownership, free transit and carshare memberships. The first five GreenTRIP projects led to developers voluntarily offering to provide of 80,000 years of free transit passes and 24,000 years of CarShare for residents of GreenTRIP buildings.

Our new GreenTRIP Connect initiative will provide groundbreaking tools, data, and community engagement to overcome some of the greatest obstacles to well-designed development near transit such as requirements for excessive parking. The goal is to dramatically increase the supply of homes affordable to all incomes, pair those with free transit passes, car-sharing and more to create a new paradigm of affordable, low-carbon development.
