In 2006-2007, GoTriangle brought together the organizations that were currently working on and/or funding Transportation Demand Management (TDM) to create a long-term plan for improving TDM efforts in the Triangle. The result was the Triangle Region 7-Year Long Range Travel Demand Management Plan. This plan called for, among other things, the two Metropolitan Planning Organizations and the NC Department of Transportation to pool their funds and have a competitive call for TDM projects.
Triangle J is charged with administering this effort on behalf of the funding organizations. In response, TJCOG developed the ongoing Transportation Demand Management Program to fund, coordinate, and evaluate regional TDM activities to reduce traffic and air pollution by promoting commute alternatives such as transit, telework, carpooling, vanpooling, biking, and walking. In addition to coordinating funding for marketing activities, TJCOG evaluates the TDM Program for effectiveness and efficiency. An example program of TDM is the Best Workplace for Commuters.
