- Provide at least three of the following options:
- Preferred parking for vehicles that have reduced emissions and/or high fuel-efficiency for three percent of the total vehicle parking capacity of the site
- Preferred parking for carpools or vanpools for three percent of the total vehicle parking capacity
- Parking capacity that is reduced by 20 percent from the base ratios, as recommended by the Parking Consultants Council (shown in the Institute of Transportation Engineers’ Transportation Planning Handbook, 3rd Edition, Tables 18-2 through 18-4)
- Site amenities at structured bus shelters (e.g. appropriate weather protection structures, seating, waste and recycling receptacles)

- Infrastructure, facilities, or incentives to promote shared usage such as carpool drop-off areas, car-share programs, bicycle-share programs, and shuttle services to mass transit
- Ensure the section of the site assessment (see Pre-Design P2.2: Conduct a pre-design site assessment) is complete and includes locations of the existing or planned pedestrian, bicycle, or transit routes and any existing parking.
- Provide transportation facilities such as alternative fuel refueling stations.
- Provide fuel-efficient vehicles for employee use during the workday.
- Support for bicycle riders may include access to bicycle racks, on-site showers, enclosed parking lockers, and flexible work scheduling to avoid rush hour traffic congestion.
