CTR affected worksites must conduct a measure of employee commute behavior every two years to analyze their progress toward their CTR goals.
There are two ways to survey your employees; the traditional paper scantron version or an online version. Both have their advantages in achieving a high response rate. Sites that are interested in the online survey should review the Is the Online Survey right for Us? document and use the sample Communication to Information Technology/Systems Staff to obtain concurrence before determining which would be best for your site.
The state-provided CTR Employee Questionnaire is the primary tool used to measure the worksite’s progress toward CTR goals and its program’s success. The survey measures employee commute behavior in two ways: vehicle miles traveled (VMT) per employee, and single-occupant vehicle (SOV) rate for the employee population surveyed. Survey results will also help you determine the effectiveness of your program elements and what program elements your employees want most.

Each year the CTR law requires employers to complete an Employer Annual Report and Program Description form. This is your opportunity to report the program elements your company used to promote alternatives to driving alone, the progress made toward meeting CTR goals, and your plan for the upcoming year.
Not submitting your Employer Annual Report and Program Description form is a violation of the CTR Law. If you need more time to complete your company's annual program report, contact your CTR prior to your due date to request an extension.
The CTR Office will provide the support and training necessary to complete your worksite’s annual report.
Each year when you submit your CTR Employer Annual Report, you will also submit your employer’s Promotion Notebook for the previous year. ETC's are required to keep samples of promotional messages provided to employees from August-July. The Promotion Notebook provides the worksite a historical document of what's been done during the year to promote CTR. It is also one of the way's the CTR affected employer demonstrates they are making a Good Faith Effort to promote CTR to its employees.
