Sharing alerts and clean air tips with the Bay Area’s workforce, the Spare the Air Employer Program helps employees participate in air quality improvement efforts year round. The Employer Program is voluntary and participation does not satisfy the requirements of the Bay Area Commuter Benefits Program. For information about compliance, view the Air District's Commuter Benefits Program web page.
Single occupant vehicle trips are the Bay Area’s greatest source of greenhouse gas emissions and traffic congestion. Regional employers can eliminate those trips by taking a vested interest in how their employees get to work. Through a conscientious commute plan, employers can improve air quality and their own bottom line. Enabling commute options saves on hiring and turnover while improving employee morale. Join the 2,000 plus organizations sparing the air daily here, and get started on your own program at employerssparetheair.org.
Bay Area employers are also encouraged to sign the Cut the Commute Pledge and commit to voluntarily including a formalized telework policy that extends remote work options by at least 25 percent for qualifying employees. This policy will be a component of their employee benefits package, improving air quality and quality of life for all Bay Area residents.
