Credit for Cutting Car Trips

New, 5 comments

Patching up what some complain is a loophole in LEED, Bay Area nonprofit TransForm has come up with a set of guidelines for developments to work toward cutting down car trips. The GreenTRIP certification lays it out thusly: "All developments must have unbundled parking, free car-share membership, and provide at least one 50-percent discounted transit pass per unit for the life of the project." We're not sure if we've seen any recent developments that go quite as far as that, but we'll go out on a limb and guess it'll be a David Baker project that does it first. [Streetsblog]
