Transportation Demand Management

Focusing on travel options as alternatives to single-occupant vehicles is about making better and more efficient use of existing infrastructure. This approach works to redistribute the demand on the transportation network – often referred to as Transportation Demand Management (TDM) – by shifting demand to other modes of travel and away from the busiest travel periods. This helps reduce travel times, traffic congestion and vehicle emissions.
