- Transportation Demand Management Plans for Independent Schools
Jurisdictions are increasingly requiring transportation demand management plans (TDMPs) to manage traffic volumes associated with independent schools, particularly new schools as well as existing schools planning to increase enrollment or add new facilities. TDMPs provide tools to limit traffic increases and to monitor traffic volumes and modes used to travel to and from school. This session will introduce participants to the purpose of TDMPs and various strategies used to develop successful plans.
