A Transportation Demand Management (TDM) Program encompasses several tools to help with traffic congestion mitigation by offering alternatives to the single- occupant vehicle. Some of these alternatives include Carpooling, Vanpooling, Teleworking, Compressed Work Week, Walking, Bicycling, and Riding the Bus.

North Carolina continues to grow at a rapid pace with more and more commuters traveling out of their respective counties to work. The more people who use alternate forms of transportation, the greater the number of people our congested corridors can carry during peak periods. Transportation supply cannot be the primary solution to traffic congestion. Not only is building additional highways expensive and time consuming, it does not solve for more immediate issues such as poor air quality.

Using strategies that increase the carrying capacity of the system – such as enabling greater use of high-occupancy vehicles (HOV), shifting trips out of rush hours, and eliminating the need for a trip altogether – helps us get the most out of our transportation investments.
