TDM Specialists develop planning documents for TDM/TSM/TMP requirements. We create:
- Car management strategies
- Traffic mitigation plans
- Sustainable programs that address green commuting, mobility, and constrained parking issues.
We have a proven track record of getting employees out of their cars. As projects are built and occupied, TDM Specialists can develop the structure, outreach, and campaigns necessary to implement and manage employee Commute Programs or parking management programs. The initial start-up, implementation, and ongoing management of the Commute Program are designed to meet employee benefits for businesses. Commuter surveys can also provide data needed to support LEED certification.
The purpose of TDM is to promote more efficient utilization of existing transportation facilities, reduce traffic congestion and mobile source emissions, and ensure that projects maximize the potential for alternative transportation use. Often, commuter programs result in recruitment and retention advantages.
