6 FY 2016 and 2017 DRCOG TDM Pool 4) Current percent of workplace employees driving alone to work 5) Average trip distance of target population currently driving alone (in miles) Boulder use our program however, so this # may be an underestimation. 73 % Since our carshare locations are primarily in Denver and Boulder we used the average of those two areas Regional average trip distance (in general) as supplied by DRCOG 6) A. Program will be active: 365 days per year for 2 years American Community Survey (provided by DRCOG) DRCOG trip and mode statistics sheet or B. Facility will be available: days per year for years 7) Other: 8) Other pertinent information that supports the attributes provided above (past results, unique project team skills, case studies/research based on similar project types, etc.). See more project specific VMT and Trip Reduction estimates below. b) (Optional) If desired, you may calculate an estimate of number trips reduced, and/or the VMT reduced as a result of this project. The estimates can be for an average day, or for a year. Provide an explanation of how you calculated the estimates, including formulas and all specific assumptions below, or in an attachment. Trip Reduction Estimate: To get our Trip Reduction Estimate, we are using the total VMT Reduction shown below, divided by the regional average trip distance (in general) of 6.70 miles. Trips Reduced = (3,621,995 VMT Reduced/year) / (6.7 miles/trip) = 540,596 Trips Reduced per year VMT Reduction Estimate: There are 3 components to our VMT Reduction Estimate: 1) The VMT savings from our 3 NEW carshare VEHICLES Using the formula provided in DRCOG's 2015 VMT and Trip Reduction Calculation Packet we get: AVMTR = N x BVMT x M x D N = number of vehicles = 3 BVMT = Baseline VMT = 3,254 VMT/person/year (Average of 2013 survey = 2,562 & 2014 survey = 3,945) M = members/vehicle = 60 members/vehicle (Number of members/vehicle supported by a usage rate of 9 hours/day) D = % VMT reduction benefit (once a member) of carsharing = 40% (Average of 2013 survey = 32.5% and 2014 survey = 47%) AVMTR = 3 vehicles * 3,254 VMT/person/year * 60 members/vehicle * 0.40 = 234,288 VMT/year 2) The VMT savings from new carshare MEMBERS acquired through the multi modal marketing campaign The 54 vehicles already in our fleet are currently in use ~4.25 hours/day/vehicle, whereas optimal capacity is 9.0+ hours/day. Based on the usage patterns of our existing members, we have calculated that we could support an additional 1,750 Page 6

8 FY 2016 and 2017 DRCOG TDM Pool * We distributed NECO Passes to over 400 residents in four NECO Pass contract neighborhoods. * We added 5 carshare vehicles on site, or in close proximity, to the focus area locations. * We partnered with Denver and Boulder B cycle to offer free or reduced bike share members to residents in the target neighborhoods. * We held a "Transportation Fair" at the Broadway East West housing development, which included a group bike ride to a local grocery store and school. * We participated in several transportation events held on site at the Mariposa development. * We increased our carshare membership rate among residents in the target neighborhoods. 18. Related to Task 1 in Question #6, describe the procedures for how you plan to calculate and compile actual post project results. (At a minimum, project awardees must conduct a survey, capturing pre and post travel habits of project participants to determine results.) We conduct online and/or hardcopy surveys of our members and program participants once a year, as well as immediately prior to joining. We use the survey metrics approved and used by other independent carsharing programs in North America. When members deactivate their carshare membership, an exit survey is also conducted. The results of these surveys will enable us to determine the approximate VMT and trip reduction benefits realized throughout the lifetime of this project. Copies of our "new member" and "existing member" surveys are available upon request. Page 8

9 D. PROJECT FUNDING REQUEST AND BUDGET FY 2016 and 2017 DRCOG TDM Pool Total federal request must be at least \$80,000 and a maximum of \$300,000. (Note: No more than \$100,000 can be requested for bicycle/pedestrian travelway portion of project.) 1. Budget Overview Total A. Enter the CMAQ Federal Funds requested, for each year (tab through columns to generate automated calculations) \$83,205 \$28,562 \$111,767 B. Required 17.21% Local Match* \$17,296 \$5,937 \$23,233 C. Total Project Cost (federal plus required local match) \$100,501 \$34,499 \$135,000 * How will you make your required local match? Cash, in kind, both? All of the required local match will be in the form of a cash match. What percentage of your local match is in kind? (e.g., 100%, 75%, 25%, 0%) If you plan to use any in kind, you must complete an in kind request form as part of this application. In kind forms and instructions will be provided at the applicant training. 0 % Page 9
