WHAT DOES TDM DO?
Transportation Demand Management (or TDM) are strategies and information to help reduce congestion, save you time, and money on your commute. TDM helps people and employers educate and use all their transportation options to optimize all modes in the system – and to counterbalance the incentives to drive that are so prevalent in subsidies of parking and roads.
Biking is an affordable alternative to driving that emits zero emissions. GVF can help commuters plan their journey to work by identifying trails and trail connections between their home and work site. Contact GVF to learn more!
A carpool typically consists of two to four people riding together to a similar area on similar schedules. A personal vehicle is typically used to run a carpool. Carpooling reduces your travel costs such as fuel costs, tolls, decreases vehicle wear and tear and the stress of driving. Carpooling improves the environment by reducing the number of cars on the road resulting in less air pollution and congestion. Contact GVF to learn more!
Public Transit is the existing fixed route transportation system consisting of busses, trolleys, and trains for those commuters seeking alternatives to driving alone. GVF can help commuters determine if transit is feasible for them. Contact GVF to learn more!
Vanpools like carpooling, carry from five to fifteen passengers. Vanpools typically operate weekdays, traveling between pick-up locations and the workplace. Pricing varies based on the size of the van, the round-trip distance, and the type of equipment in a van. Amenities could include on-board Wi-fi, luxury seats and bike racks.
Compared to the cost of driving long distances alone, vanpooling will save on average 50-75%. (Enterprise Rideshare FAQ) Contact GVF to learn more!
Walking is the best way to get to work: it costs nothing, emits zero emissions and promotes physical health. Consider your general health and the route to work when deciding if this commute alternative is right for you. Typically, most walkers commute about two miles one-way to work. Remember, if you are unable to walk to work, you can always walk to a public transit stop and take two alternatives to work! Contact GVF to learn more!
