Event Details

The Bay Area TDM Summit occurred during National TDM Week 2023 and the Bay Area’s eighth annual Transit Month. It also coincided with World Car-Free Day 2023! Transportation Demand Management (TDM) provides people with transportation options that enable them to travel in an affordable, efficient, and sustainable way. Supported by effective marketing, incentives, and advanced technologies, people can make informed choices to meet each trip’s unique needs while considering cost, time, carbon footprint, health, and convenience. Thank you to all who joined the region’s professionals and leaders in the field to learn the latest and greatest on how TDM is one of the most cost-effective ways to meet the region’s key policy objectives.
