Abstract

Universities and other employers can offer internal and external programs to create a wide variety of alternative transportation options and associated incentives to its commuting population that can significantly reduce drive-alone commute rates, parking demand, and an organization’s carbon footprint. This presentation provides an overview of the components of a comprehensive transportation demand management program, covering program elements that encourage the use of alternative transportation, marketing efforts, how reduced demand for parking can increase land use opportunities, and metrics upon which program success can be measured.
