Stephanie Loyka, Durham County Outreach and Trip Reduction Ordinance Administrator with Triangle Transit, followed with a case study example. She provided background on the Durham County (NC) Trip Reduction Ordinance, why it was established originally, how it initially functioned and has grown in the last 10 years. Stephanie discussed the processes she used to update the ordinance. Considerations included studying best practices, updating community goals, and simplifying the language and terminology into laymen’s terms. With the goal of customer oriented services, she aimed not only to reconstruct an ordinance to meet the County goals in the most feasible way possible, but also to meet the employers’ goals and make the process more palatable for them, paying attention to their business needs in the process.
