Commute Trip Reduction Program
The port’s commute trip reduction opportunities include ride match information, bike to work week, and commuting challenges. We constructed segments of the bicycle/pedestrian trail along State Route 501, connecting commuters to key transportation corridors. We provide indoor bicycle parking and showers for commuters and an outdoor bike rack for visitors.
