Los Angeles Valley College, in cooperation with the South Coast Air Quality Management District, is working to reduce air pollution caused by college employees commuting to and from work. To accomplish the goal of reducing air pollution the college has instituted the LAVC Rideshare Program which entails conducting at least an annual survey of employees’ modes of transportation to determine the college’s AVR (Average Vehicle Ridership) which lets us know how many riders we average per vehicle, our goal being 1.50, providing incentives to employees who carpool, use public transportation, bicycle or walk to work, and for those using zero emission motor vehicles. Additional services provided include:
