1988 the Omnibus Clean Air Act was passed, among other pollution
control strategies, this act included mandatory emissions testing, use
of oxygenated fuels and the mandatory Trip Reduction Program.
The purpose for the Maricopa County
Sir Quality and Trip Reduction Program is to help reduce single
occupant commutes to and from work by educating and promoting trip
reduction. To comply with the program Gilbert Public Schools has
implemented its own program to help get the information needed to the
employees, as well as give incentive to participate in reducing
congestion. This starts with what we do best education.
Pollution is a year round concern in the Valley, there are three primary
types, which include Ozone in the summer and carbon monoxide and
particle matter in the winter.

have with Air Pollution, along with periodic news alerts, Valley Metro
has established a High Pollution Advisory program to let individuals
know when the pollutants have become hazardous. (For more information
