Best Workplaces for Commuters (BWC) is a fast-growing partnership program between the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), and private- and public-sector employers throughout the country. Through BWC, the numbers of vehicle trips and miles, and hence, emissions of criteria pollutants and greenhouse gases are reduced in many communities. This has led to an interest on the part of planners in some areas to incorporate these benefits into their state implementation plans (SIPs) or transportation conformity determinations. Therefore, EPA has prepared this guidance to help states or agencies estimate the emission benefits of control measures implemented through BWC and other commuter benefit programs and, under appropriate circumstances, take credit for them in SIPs and conformity determinations.
