Emissions, traffic congestion, road and parking infrastructure can all be reduced by limiting the number of single occupancy vehicles (SOVs) on our roads. The initiatives that lead to lowering SOV numbers all fall under the umbrella of Transportation Demand Management (TDM). TDM initiatives encourage transportation mode changes by creating opportunities and using incentives and disincentives. Many of these initiatives many involve parking. In this course, we will introduce you to TDM and focus on its impact on parking and parking initiatives. This 35 minute course is a great introduction to TDM for building designers and will also provide valuable information for building owners and facility managers.
