GreenTRIP Benefits and Stories

GreenTRIP's impact goes far beyond reducing traffic.

The GreenTRIP certification program is transforming how we approach growth in our communities by planning for people—not parking. 

GreenTRIP is helping communities across the Bay Area plan for growth in a way that creates safe and vibrant neighborhoods – neighborhoods where families like the Lopez’s can afford to stay in a place they can love to call home. Living in a GreenTRIP certified apartment changed the lives of San Jose resident Rosalia Lopez and her family - read the whole story here.

What Developers are Saying About GreenTRIP

"GreenTRIP provides valuable advice on the latest innovations in traffic reduction. GreenTRIP also provides an excellent, brief, well-designed report which made it easy for the zoning board and project neighbors to grasp the transportation benefits of our project. 

Garden Village's GreenTRIP Certification was integral in helping us build a project that includes 10% affordable units, has zero resident parking spaces and provides nearly $1 million of alternative transportation benefits to our tenants. 

Until working with GreenTRIP we didn't realize there were so many great alternatives to providing parking, which is expensive, drives up rental costs and often times kills a project. GreenTRIP helped us win unanimous approval from the board and resulted in a much better project with a new marketing edge.  

I'm proud our project has set the bar for the most robust traffic reduction program in Berkeley to date. The GreenTRIP model was integral to our success and allowed us to prioritize people over parking."

- Jason M. Laub, Vice President, Nautilus Group Inc. Developers of Garden Village, GreenTRIP’s first Zero-Parking and Platinum project.
