Transportation Demand Management (TDM) (Corvallis)
Overview
Transportation Demand Management (TDM) is a planning tool that increases the efficiency of the transportation system by providing options for users other than driving alone and incentives to use those options.
 
TDM is an action or set of actions that seek to increase the use of commute alternatives by using and encouraging modes other than single-occupant vehicle usage, such as transit, bicycle, walking, carpool, vanpool, etc. TDM also seeks to spread the timing of travel to less congested periods, reduce the need to travel, and shift the routing of vehicles, including trucks and single occupant vehicles, to less-congested routes.
 
A successful TDM program often requires facilities and equipment to support the programs, such as transit buses and bike lanes, or social support such as flexible work environments.  A TDM program will also cross multiple state and local jurisdictions and requires support and cooperation across multiple jurisdictions.
 
A TDM program is only part of a larger solution needed to ease congestion in east Corvallis.
 
Addressing congestion throughout the area requires an integrated approach with multiple components.
 
State and local officials are working together to determine how potential TDM ideas would help ease congestion.
 

Public Involvement
ODOT has gathered public opinion on the problem and potential solutions
throughout the projects that led to the conclusion that a TDM program could be part of a larger solution to ease east Corvallis congestion,
