Municipal governments can play an integral role in implementing Travel Demand Management (TDM) strategies and in shaping the transportation options available in a community.

Transportation Demand Strateies, or TDM, refers to strategies that increase transportation system efficiency. TDM strategies can help communities achieve many municipal goals and local planning objectives. By integrating travel demand management into local land use planning, communities can not only improve transportation services but can also meet environmental, cultural, recreational, housing, and economic development goals as well as help improve overall quality of life.

By clicking on one of the community objectives listed on the right you will be directed to a site containing strategies for implementing that objective, challenges to implementation, funding opportunities and incentives, relevant policies and regulations, model plans and much more.
