With record funding levels and new federal programs like Carbon Reduction included within the Infrastructure Investment & Jobs Act, there is significant opportunity for states to support increased investments in TDM strategies that will improve efficiency of our transportation systems and expand sustainable mobility options for all people.  This panel will share how state DOTs are looking to utilize federal programs to achieve TDM and climate goals.

10:15 a.m. - Achieving Decarbonization through TDM
Making immediate steps towards the decarbonization of our transportation will require the use of TDM strategies to provide real transportation options to people.  TDM measures are among the most cost effective strategies in reducing vehicle emissions, which is why the use of TDM was identified as a key lever for policymakers to utilize within the National Blueprint for Transportation Decarbonization.  This panel will discuss actionable steps that can be taken by Congress, US DOT, and State leaders to achieve results.
