FLORIDA'S COMMUTE ALTERNATIVES SYSTEMS HANDBOOK

This manual was developed to inform developers, planners, employers, and others about Transportation Demand Management (TDM) and how it can enhance the quality of life in Florida. Basically, TDM reduces congestion and pollution by influencing changes in travel behavior. The manual is divided into 8 sections, which provide: a general overview of TDM and the Florida Commuter assistance program; a focus on transportation and growth management problems that have increased the need for TDM, and on state and federal legislation that require the use of TDM strategies; an examination of various TDM strategies, including ridesharing pools, alternative work hours, telecommuting, park management, HOV lanes, pedestrian and bicycle alternatives, trip reduction ordinances, and ITS applications; an explanation of how to prepare a TDM plan and develop a TDM program or transportation management organization, and how to carry out TDM strategies via trip reduction ordinances; a description of state, federal and other organizations that provide funding and technical assistance. Endnotes, a glossary of terms, and a bibliography are also presented.
