SS Credit 4: Alternative Transportation

You can achieve a maximum of 4 points in this section with the following sub-categories:
- public transportation access
- bicycle storage and changing rooms
- alternative fuel vehicles
- parking capacity

The most important thing about this category is to understand what FTE is, and how it is used to calculate the amount of bike storage and changing rooms needed to satisfy the minimum requirement to achieve this credit.

Equations to Remember:

FTE = Full-Time Equivalent building occupants based on a standard eight-hour workday.

Secure Bicycle Spaces [non-rez buildings] = FTE Building Occupants x 5 %
Secure Bicycle Spaces [rez buildings] = FTE Building Occupants x 15 %

Showering Facilities [non-rez buildings] = Bicycling Spaces / 8

To start with I would like to congratulate the cradores of this blog, mainly because when I read it I enjoyed it very much. A few years ago I attended a conference called guanacaste costa rica real estate, at that conference had many interesting topics. Perhaps readers may find no relationship between the blog and this conference, but if someday can attend, would realize that there is much to do with this blog.

Well I was bored, but not bored enough to work on my next big post, so I thought I'd do a small post, hence the title, to keep people entertained until my writer's block subsides.
