THE IMPACT OF CORPORATE DOWNSIZING ON GOAL ADJUSTMENT OF AN EMPLOYER-BASED TDM PROGRAM

One of the more successful Transportation Demand Management (TDM) programs in Montgomery County, Maryland is the Rock Spring Park Commuter Service Center. This is an employer-based program that was established to permit approximately 1.1 million square feet of development to receive approvals in the Rock Spring Park corporate office park area. Specific trip reduction goals were established based on approved development levels that would result in an anticipated 15,500 employees in the Park. Due to corporate downsizing, employee levels were not reached. This paper describes the process by which trip reduction goals were adjusted to reflect the effects of reductions in employees. Included is a description of program performance, summary of employee levels, discussion with Montgomery County Planning Board staff, and the decision by the Planning Board.
