Take a Break from the Exhaust (TABFTE) is a computer program that tracks voluntary actions employees take to reduce air pollution. Employees are awarded points for reducing the amount of vehicle miles traveled (VMT) during the work week by carpooling, staying in the office for lunch, telecommuting, and using mass transit. TABFTE also provides ground-level ozone forecasts April 1st September 30th. Contact us for more information on TABFTE.
