Air Quality Planning
As an Employee of the State of Arizona, ADOT participates in Trip Reduction Program through Capitol Rideshare.
Capitol Rideshare offers incentives and programs to encourage State employees to reduce travel in Maricopa County especially on a High Pollution Advisory (HPA) Day. ADOT forwards employees, air quality forecasts, surveys, and other trip reduction information to actively promote alternatives to single occupant vehicle travel.
Not a State employee - Any individual can find a rideshare partner Statewide at http://www.sharetheride.com/
The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality, Maricopa Air Quality Department, Pima County Department of Environmental Quality and Pinal County Air Quality Department all have responsibility for implementing
and enforcing air quality standards for the State.

A few Tips for Controlling Pollution:
Participate in High Pollution Advisory Program, reduce idling, bring lunch to work, avoid peak hour traffic, reduce trips, and keep car maintained.
Additional controls for Particulate Matter; stabilize loose soils, minimize travel on dirt roads, utilize tarps on haul trucks, limit use of leaf-blowers, do not use fireplace, and on high-wind days reduce outdoor activities.
