Transportation Demand Management

Overview

Transportation Demand Management

The mission of the TDM program is to reduce vehicle trips and miles traveled by implementing cost-effective and innovative programs, services, projects, strategies, and policies that encourage and enable people to change their travel behavior. This mission, and the goals below, were developed through the TDM strategic planning process in 2016. The three major goals of the program are to:

1. Leverage existing and new partnerships to maximize technological opportunities, raise awareness of programs/services, and offer improved and new cost-effective programs/services that support alternative mode use and behavior change;

2. Better integrate TDM with planning and project delivery both to improve the land use/transportation planning process and promote new multimodal infrastructure when it is completed; and

3. Collect and analyze data to make smart investments that focus on long-term behavior change.
