As you may know, Oregon's Department of Environmental quality has placed Employee Commute Option requirements on companies of 100 or more employees. For chapter and verse of the rules see https://secure.sos.state.or.us/oard/displayDivisionRules.action?selectedDivision=1554 and/or check out their Fact Sheet: https://www.oregon.gov/deq/FilterDocs/ECOcommuteFS.pdf
Heidi Beierle with the West Columbia Gorge Chamber is putting the finishing touches on a commute options demand study for the industrial areas out in Troutdale and Fairview. In the process of preparing this study, Heidi became aware of workforce access/transportation inequities that exist in the project study area.
