The City of Corvallis encourages its residents and visitors to reduce the number of trips made by single-occupancy vehicles ("SOVs"). Alternative modes of transportation, such as bicycling, buses, walking, skating, and carpooling or vanpooling, as well as telecommuting, can reduce traffic congestion and provide benefits to individuals and to the community:
- Reduced traffic congestion and air pollution improve community livability.
- Less traffic reduces the need for additional, expensive roadway construction projects.
- Fewer vehicles on the road means less land is needed for parking facilities, allowing it to be used for open space or commercial and residential development.
- Walking, bicycling and skating can improve health and well-being.
