Where, how and when should transportation demand management (TDM) be integrated into the transportation planning process? The “How to Integrate TDM in the Planning Process” netconference, held on June 23, 2011, was co-sponsored by the Association for Commuter Transportation and the National Center for Transit Research. Three speakers provided an overview of the transportation planning process and discussed how to develop relationships with area MPOs to integrate key TDM policy objectives into the long-range planning process.
