EFFECTIVE TRAVEL DEMAND MANAGEMENT MEASURES. PART I: OVERVIEW

Travel demand management (TDM) programs are designed to maximize the people-moving capability of the transportation system by increasing the number of persons in a vehicle, or by influencing the time of, or need to, travel. To accomplish these types of changes, TDM programs must rely on incentives or disincentives to make these shifts in behavior attractive. The term TDM encompasses both alternatives to driving alone and the techniques or strategies that encourage the use of these modes. The application of such TDM alternatives and the implementation of supporting strategies can occur at different levels under the direction of a variety of groups. Certainly, one level of application found in many parts of the country is at individual employer sites, or at locations where there are many employers grouped together. In this situation, the employers become the important implementers of the TDM actions, even though they may be responding to a government mandate to do so.
