Transportation Demand Management
Transportation Demand Management (TDM) promotes transportation choices such as carpooling, vanpooling, transit, walking, biking, teleworking and flexible work hours. It emphasizes the movement of people and goods, rather than vehicles, by providing convenient transportation options to driving alone. This benefits the community by maximizing the efficiency of existing infrastructure and limiting impacts of excessive traffic on Bellevue neighborhoods.
In addition, reducing trips limits pollution to the air and water and supports the city’s commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Bellevue's various TDM activities are directed at employers, employees, property managers, residents and visitors. A draft Citywide Transportation Demand Management Plan is a 10-year outline for the city and its partners to implement a variety of strategies in key locations, depending on available resources.
