What is TDM, and why do we need a TDM plan?
The Atlanta Regional Transportation Demand Management (TDM) Plan is a long-range plan that defines a strategic framework for developing and integrating TDM into planning, project development and system operations investment decision-making. TDM provides set of strategies that maximize traveler choices. These travel choices include the mode, route, and time of travel, as well as home and work location decisions.
TDM is a key method for ARC and partners to support and improve regional mobility. The 2023 Regional TDM Plan update, Mobility Connections: Expanding Opportunity, seeks to ensure that TDM remains a key approach to deliver better environmental outcomes, connect individuals with economic opportunity and essential services, improve public health and social equity, foster stronger communities, and create more prosperous and livable places.
ARC’s Mobility Services Department manages the regional TDM program, Georgia Commute Options, including Guaranteed Ride Home. They also provide technical and financial management for Employer Service Organizations (ESOs) who work with area employers to help establish and operate commute options programs for their employees.
