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:
