WHAT IS TRANSPORTATION DEMAND MANAGEMENT?

Park City has adopted Transportation as a Critical Priority for our community. This means, we are focused on improving mobility options and the quality of life for those who work, live, and play here by implementing big changes, new policies, and programs that help people change their travel behaviors.

One approach to this is programmatic. Transportation Demand Management programs, we call TDM programs, target different travel markets to offer incentives to help people travel differently. Offering vanpool options, carpooling apps, park and rides, increased transit frequency and range, and other strategies are often deployed. The target markets in our TDM plan are:

  • People who live in Park City
  • People who live in Park City part-time (second home owners)
  • People commute in to work in Park City but live elsewhere
  • People who work and live in Park City
  • People who visit Park City

The Transportation Demand Management Plan, adopted by Council in 2016, guides our work on providing options and incentives for the target markets to make it easier to chose modes of transportation other than driving alone.

 

                

 PROGRESS ON IMPLEMENTATION:

In October 2019, Park City Transportation Planning staff provided an update to City Council on our progress in implementing the TDM Plan. The following information was provided:

TDM Progress Report                                                                                                                           

TDM Progress Report

This report highlights the strategies we've accomplished and currently maintain; the strategies in progress, and those not yet implemented. Staff have made considerable progress on implementing the projects and programs recommended by the TDM Plan; nearly two-thirds complete. 

 TDM Performance Metrics

 TDM Performance Metrics

This report indicates the performance measures we are tracking as suggested by the TDM Plan. This is not a comprehensive list of all metrics we track to monitor our progress and successes. The ones listed in this report also tend to focus more heavily on transit service and are not exhaustive in how we monitor and report on other modes like walking, bicycling and trail use.

 

 

Parking Data Summary

 Parking Data Summary

This report highlights the new data we've been able to collect as it relates to parking occupancy at our paid facilities. This helps staff better understand when, how much, and for how long paid parking is being utilized. This changes seasonally, as parking prices change, and as demand increases/decreases based on peak times and events.
