Transportation Management Programs

SDOT’s Program to Promote Transportation Options in Large Buildings  

Transportation Management Programs (TMP) play an important role in helping Seattle achieve its transportation goals by reducing drive-alone trips. Similar to the Commute Trip Reduction Program, the City works with property owners and managers to help implement strategies to facilitate their tenants’ use of travel options including transit, walking, carpooling, and bicycling. However, while CTR applies to large employers, TMPs apply to all of the tenants in a particular building.
The Department of Planning and Development (DPD) and SDOT share responsibility for working with the developers and property managers to create and implement effective TMPs.  Successful programs can include a variety of different elements, such as:

  • A centralized information center that displays information about different travel options
  • Free parking for carpools and vanpools
  • Pedestrian and bicycle wayfinding signs to trails and transit stops
  • Transit pass subsidies to employees who work at the site
  • Bike parking  and on-site locker and shower facilities

If you’re a property manager or Building Transportation Coordinator (BTC), and have questions about surveying and reporting, check out the resources below:
