TDM Action Plan

Transportation Demand Management

TDM Plan logoTransportation Demand Management, usually shortened to TDM, is a variety of strategies that can be implemented to incentivize alternative transportation and increase the capacity of our existing transportation system. The more people who drive alone, the more traffic – but it’s hard to travel if there aren’t enough options that fit your needs.

TDM Action Plan

NFRMPO staff undertook the TDM Action Plan throughout 2022, convening the TDM Work Group described below. The Plan included goal- and vision-setting efforts; analysis of current needs, programs, and efforts; identification of partner agencies for ongoing partnerships and implementation; and development of a Transportation Management Organization (TMO). The planning effort analyzed different commuting trends, population, and local, regional, and state efforts. Based on these analyses, the Plan recommends the following five goals:

  • Enhance partnerships and collaboration between local communities, businesses, regional and State agencies, and other interested parties
  • Create and enhance regional TDM programming to optimize people throughput
  • Improve data collection to support new and expanded investments and programming
  • Invest in infrastructure and resources to provide additional options and help people make informed transportation choices
  • Communicate the purpose, benefits, and successes of providing mobility options

Planning Council adopted the TDM Action Plan on December 1, 2022.
