Transportation Demand Management (TDM) describes the promotion of policies and programs which seek to decrease congestion and transportation demand. Familiar TDM strategies include carpooling, vanpooling, transit, last mile connectivity and teleworking. ARC coordinates TDM services for the Atlanta region through its Ridesmart initiative.
In June 2012, ARC initiated development of the Atlanta region’s first ever Regional Transportation Demand Management (TDM) Plan. The effort will produce a long-range plan that will define a strategic framework for developing and integrating TDM strategies into planning, project development, and system operations investment decision-making. It is intended to build off the region’s current long-range comprehensive plan, PLAN 2040, and provide input into the update of future regional plans and programs.
