Santa Monica Employee Trip Reduction Plan

My company is based in Santa Monica, CA and registered with the City as a business.  In return, they've sent us a package called an Employee Trip Reduction Plan, that requires compliance by April 15.  We are approaching 100 employees and must get in compliance for the first time.  Is there someone on this list who's been through this experience or can refer me to someone.  I'd like to get some insight on the best way to implement this and ensure that we meet the requirements, while at the same time don't get saddled with a bunch of new procedures and costs.  The City seems to recommend hiring a consultant to comply, but that seems excessive.

Thanks,
Paul

I'm the controller of a Santa Monica based company with under 25 staff and every year we have to submit a Rideshare program, list employees and the city they commute from, show the stategies we've implemented to encourage ridesharing and biking to work, and pay a fee per employee that commute. We pass out material to all new staff, have employee posters up with cash encentive prizes for ridesharing or biking for three month periods and other information detailing availablity of carpools and buses. It has encouraged a few to take the bus or bike and a few that have been allowed to work from home. with 100 employees, it may be more involved. I encourage you to go through the package, answer what questions you can and highlight those you don't understand, then call the Rideshare Transportation office to go over your questions. We attended a class years ago to find out how to institute our plan and I'm thinking that they may still hold them.
