COMMUTER Model
Abstract The Excel-based COMMUTER model assists worksite transportation coordinators and local planners in estimating the impacts of commuter programs, such as percentage of trips eliminated or shifted to non-peak periods, and changes in emissions.  +
DIA/Approach COMMUTER is a spreadsheet-based computer m
COMMUTER is a spreadsheet-based computer model that estimates the travel and emissions impacts of transportation air quality programs focused on commuting. The model is particularly useful for programs such as those recognized under the EPA’s Best Workplaces for CommutersSM and other Commuter Choice Programs.
