On April 25, 2007, the Association for Commuter Transportation (ACT) and the National Center for Transit Research (NCTR) at the University of South Florida hosted a “virtual discussion” with a panel of transportation demand management (TDM) professionals who have been providing area-wide financial incentives across modes and/or who have mode-specific financial incentive programs. This event, led by co-moderators Donna Smallwood and Peter Valk, included a panel of experts who discussed how to provide rewards for changing travel behavior and use public resources cost effectively. The streaming media recording also includes over 35 minutes of a lively question and answer period. Questions were fielded from the estimated 125 attendees scattered in 24 locations around the country who heard the presentation live.
