Upcoming TRB webinar
A number of state departments of Transportation (DOTs) are very active in promoting, funding, and implementing Transportation demand management (TDM) programs. TDM promotes alternatives to single occupant vehicle usage in order to reduce congestion and preserve the environment. To share the successes and lessons learned from the states’ experiences, the National Cooperative Highway Research Program is producing a report that will provide examples of successful implementation and support of TDM programs by state DOTs.
On Thursday, June 17, TRB will host a webinar from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. CDT to explore the findings of the report, which will be released later this summer. Presenters will discuss case studies that illustrate the different ways that states have implemented TDM. A survey of TDM programs developed by state DOTs will also be discussed. This webinar will be useful for practitioners interested in incorporating TDM strategies into state, local, and regional programs.
As part of GO TO 2040, CMAP prepared a Strategy Paper on TDM.
