Travel Demand Management
Travel Demand Management (TDM) addresses the demand side of travel behavior by reducing the number of vehicles that travel on roadways through the promotion of alternatives to driving alone. Common TDM strategies include ridesharing (carpool and vanpool), transit, biking, walking, telecommuting, and flexible work-hour scheduling. TDM projects and programs currently implemented in the North Central Texas region help to reduce traffic congestion, improve air quality, and increase the efficiency of our regional roadways. These programs include the Regional Vanpool Program; the Regional Employer Trip Reduction Program; TryParkingIt.com – the region’s ride-matching and commute tracking website; a network of park-and-ride facilities; and several Transportation Management Associations (TMA).
