A Framework for Monitoring the Performance of Demand Management and Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT) Reduction Activities

This report presents a framework to support performance monitoring for demand management related to vehicle miles traveled (VMT) reduction. The framework consists of performance monitoring measures and a system for their collection and dissemination. The report also provides the context within which the framework would exist, and describes how it will support a wide variety of other statewide and regional needs, thus providing additional incentive for its adoption. The intent of the Framework is to not only meet the requirements of Washington state’s legislative requirement to reduce VMT per capita (RCW 47.01.440), but to do so in a way that provides Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) and its partner agencies with information that supports planning and programming. The report also provides an excellent framework for developing and reporting congestion-related performance measures in support of MAP-21 (“Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century” federal legislation).
