Transportation demand management for beijing 2008 olympic games

From 8th to 24th in August 2008, a set of Traffic Demand Management (TDM) policies were applied in Beijing during the 2008 Olympic Games. These TDM strategies include improving performance of the existing transportation network, staggering work schedules and limiting the use of public vehicles and private vehicles. This paper studies the performance targets, the implementation details and the effects of these TDM measures. Some useful conclusions about how to improve the quality of transport services and how to satisfy the need of international community and local public during important activities are drawn from this paper. The authors are happy to witness that fluent traffic services were provided for Beijing Summer Olympics 2008 via the aid of these transport services.
