The ‘Alternative Transport Program’ credit assesses the building owner and/or operator supported alternative transport modes that are offered to building users in order to reduce their reliance on conventional single-occupant vehicles.
For points to be awarded, an ‘Alternative Transport Program’ must be implemented for regular building occupants. An alternative transportation program (also known as a ‘travel plan’, ‘green transport plan’ or an ‘active living transport plan’) is one that facilitates, promotes and encourages the use of alternative transportation modes such as public transport.
Additional points are awarded where the alternative transportation program also facilitates the use of alternative transportation by visitors to the premises.
