GreenTRIP Application Process

Is there a fantastic development that should be awarded GreenTRIP certification?

Or would you like help designing a project that integrates traffic reduction strategies?

We would be happy to evaluate your project!

GreenTRIP certifies residential and mixed-used projects that apply strategies to reduce vehicle trips, excessive parking, and greenhouse gases, while making transportation more affordable. We offer third-party evaluation and support by attending public hearings and creating external communication materials that clearly outline the project's benefits. 

To Apply:

  1. Please reach out to the GreenTRIP team at [email protected].
  2. We will hold an introductory phone call to learn more about your project. If accepted for certification, we will request a full application form and evaluation fee.
  3. We will then set up a kick-off meeting with your project team to discuss the details of your project, a timeline for certification steps, potential traffic reduction strategies, and examples of projects implementing these strategies.

Minimum Eligibility Requirements:

  1. Multi-family housing, with some mixed-use.
  2. Project density: at least 20 units/acre.
  3. Resident bike parking: at least 1 space per unit.
  4. Guest bike parking for 20% of units.
  5. Annual transportation and parking survey administered.
  6. Within urban growth boundaries.
