Transportation Demand Management and Park & Ride

Transportation Demand Management (TDM) uses strategies and policies to reduce single occupant vehicles and encourage/incentivize other modes such as walking, biking, ridesharing, vanpooling, transit, bikesharing and car-sharing. TDM also includes shifting travel demand away from typical rush hour times. Reducing the amount of automobile traffic during peak travel hours improves transportation system efficiency, reduces vehicle miles traveled (VMT), improves air quality, reduces traffic congestion, improves access to employment, and enhances the livability of our communities. In addition to focusing on sustainable modes, TDM also includes measures such as flexible work schedules, telecommuting, preferential parking, financial incentives and more.
