Transportation Demand Management

Transportation Demand Management or TDM (also called Mobility Management) refers to various strategies that change travel behavior (how, when, and where people travel) in order to increase transport system efficiency and achieve specific planning objectives. TDM is increasingly used to address a variety of problems. Click here for more information about TDM.

In 1991, the Washington State Legislature passed the Commute Trip Reduction (CTR) law requiring employers to work with employees to reduce the number and length of drive-alone commute trips made to the worksite. The City of Seattle and SDOT encourage all commuters to use alternatives to driving alone to work. People who ride the bus, carpool, vanpool, bike, or walk to workor even use telework arrangementsenjoy additional benefits from these modes. They also help to stem further air quality deterioration, reduce energy use, and put the brakes on traffic congestion in the Puget Sound area. Click here for more information about CTR in Seattle.
