QUANTIFYING THE BENEFITS OF NON-MOTORIZED TRAVEL FOR ACHIEVING TDM OBJECTIVES
This paper examines the degree to which non-motorized travel (walking and cycling) help achieve Transportation Demand Management (TDM) objectives, including congestion reduction, road and parking facility cost savings, consumer cost savings, and various environmental and social benefits. The potential of non-motorized travel as a transportation mode is considered. Potential barriers and problems associated with increased walking and cycling are examined. Specific pedestrian and bicycle transportation encouragement strategies are discussed. This paper updates and expands on the paper "Quantifying Bicycling Benefits for Achieving TDM objectives," published in Transportation Research Record, No. 1441 (Nonmotorized Transportation Around the World), 1994, pp. 134-140.
