PROVIDING TRANSPORTATION CHOICES. A CASE STUDY IN TRANSPORTATION DEMAND MANAGEMENT
Traffic congestion in the Seattle Metropolitan Area in Washington State is reaching unprecedented levels. The area was recently rated has having some of the worst traffic congestion in the country. Communities are finding that opportunities to build a solution to this congestion are limited if they exist at all. Although the region is in the process of developing a regional transit system to serve regional travel corridors, many of the small communities as well as the major business districts of the region may still be plagued by snarled traffic jams due to the volume of diverse trips being made every day. Encouraged by the new state laws, these communities are turning to demand management to cope with their transportation needs.
