TRANSPORTATION DEMAND MANAGEMENT

is about providing choices to ensure alternative travel reliability.

Transportation Demand Management (TDM) is a combination of services, incentives, facilities, and actions that reduce single-occupant vehicle (SOV) trips to help relieve traffic congestion, parking demand, and air pollution problems. The purpose of TDM is to promote more efficient utilization of existing transportation resources, and to ensure that new developments are designed to maximize the potential for sustainable transportation usage.
