What is Transportation Demand Management?

Transportation Demand Management (TDM) is the application of strategies, policies, and programs to better manage transportation needs. It is a cost-effective approach to improving transportation by maximizing mobility choices that meet and exceed traveler needs.

Transportation Demand Management (TDM) PLAN

The City and County of Honolulu in cooperation with the Oʻahu Metropolitan Planning Organization and the United States Department of Transportation developed a TDM Plan to reduce vehicle miles traveled and increase walking, bicycling, rideshare and transit use. It will help achieve the City’s transportation, environmental, economic, health and equity goals. The program is intended to help transform the way we use transportation resources to improve mobility and quality of life while reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and transportation costs.

The TDM Plan developed targets and strategies that are informed by community and stakeholder engagement, including:

  • Online TDM monitoring and reporting system
  • Marketing support and education materials
  • Legislative changes and enabling policies
  • TDM programs to support more active transportation
  • Evaluation and monitoring to measure success of the TDM Plan

The development of the TDM Plan was consistent with the City’s 2018 Climate Change directive and the regional goals outlined in Oʻahu Regional Transportation Plan (ORTP), Complete Streets Ordinance 12-15, Honolulu Complete Streets Design Manual, Oʻahu Bike Plan Update, Oʻahu Pedestrian Plan, and Complete Streets Transportation Impact Assessment Guidelines and Instructions.
