Employee Transportation Coordinator Support
Many companies utilize an ETC to manage and comply with air quality and trip reduction regulations by South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) or local city ordinances. Metro Shared Mobility provides assistance to employers for Average Vehicle Ridership (AVR) reports, ridematching, and marketing workshops for all ETCs at no cost.
AVR Surveying and Reporting
SCAQMD and local cities set AVR targets ranging from 1.30 to 2.2 (Santa Monica) for employers. These regulators require companies in their region to survey employees annually and calculate their worksite’s AVR. Metro Shared Mobility helps provides assistance with the survey process and offers ETC Briefing Sessions. Metro also collects the survey data, and prepares required AVR reports.
ETC Briefing Sessions
Sessions are currently held online. To RSVP, please send an email to SharedMobility@metro.net with your name, employer, phone number, and the date you would like to attend.

If you are a new ETC or surveying for the first time with Metro you must attend an ETC Briefing Session to receive Metro’s services. Experienced ETCs who have previously surveyed with Metro can also attend these Briefing Sessions to catch up on the latest AVR updates.
Online Access to AVR Data
AVR reports and employee survey data is available to ETCs online and is a useful tool to increase ridesharing. ETCs have access to a secure portal with information to coordinate carpool, vanpool and transit opportunities for employees. ETC Portal Training is held monthly to learn how-to make the most of your AVR data and use the tools available in ridematch.info. Contact Metro Shared Mobility at 213.922.2811 or SharedMobility@metro.net.
RideGuides and Ridematch.info
It’s important to encourage your employees to say “Yes to the RideGuide!” when filling out their AVR survey form. This provides employees with a profile on Ridematch.info and includes a personalized list of potential carpool, vanpool , and transit options that are available for their commute. Contact Metro Shared Mobility at 213.922.2811 or email SharedMobility@metro.net to learn more.
ETC Marketing Workshop
SCAQMD and other local cities may require attendance at a Marketing Workshop as one of the strategies in their trip reduction program. Metro Shared Mobility offers these FREE workshops on a biannual basis. They are held at Metro Headquarters in Los Angeles or online. The workshops are designed to broaden the ability of ETCs to market shared mobility programs to their employees.
Diamond Awards (Postponed)
