Employer Program

Started to share alerts with the Bay Area’s workforce, the Spare the Air Employer Program helps employees participate in air quality improvement efforts year round. Today, more than 2,000 businesses and government agencies are active in the program.

How It Works

The day before a Spare the Air Alert is in effect, employers receive a notice to forward to their employees. With this advance notice, employees have the opportunity to arrange carpools, plan to bike or take transit, or make arrangements to telecommute. All of these efforts reduce the number of vehicle trips taken and help lower emissions on a critical air quality day.
