Transportation Demand Management

About the Program

Transportation Demand Management (TDM) aims to reduce reliance on single-occupancy vehicles (SOV) for commute, by encouraging alternative options such as carpooling, vanpooling, public transit, biking, walking, teleworking, and flexible work weeks. TJCOG serves as the administrator of the Triangle TDM Program that links NC state policy and funding with local and regional service providers.

Funding is provided by the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) and Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) Improvement Program. These funds are provided on behalf of two Triangle Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPO): North Carolina Capital Area MPO (NC CAMPO) and Durham-Chapel Hill-Carrboro MPO DCHC. 

The TDM Program's yearly Impact Report calculates reductions in vehicle trips, vehicle miles traveled, and vehicular emissions resulting from programs funded in that grant cycle by the Program. For more information about the program please read our latest Impact Report.

FY20 Grantees

TJCOG releases a call for proposals every Nov/Dec inviting applications from Triangle area organizations to get funding for conducting TDM outreach activities.  The grantees are generally referred to as Service Providers or Partners. The FY20 awards were made in April 2019 and the grant cycle kicked off in July.

This cycle is funding one (1) Regional Service Provider and twelve (12) Local Service Providers (LSPs).  GoTriangle as the Regional Provider will implement and coordinate regional TDM services. It works closely with the LSPs  and is the lead agency on all regional marketing and outreach initiatives. The LSPs develop and implement TDM campaigns and/or activities and provide TDM outreach in their specific hotspots. 

Below is the list of all Providers funded for the FY20:

What's New?

It's exciting time for the Triangle TDM program at the moment. TJCOG is working on updating the 2007 Plan. Since April 2019, it has facilitated several focus group meetings with different TDM stakeholder groups and Gresham Smith (NCDOT’s lead consultant on Statewide TDM program).  TJCOG continues to work very closely with the Oversight Committee and other Partners to help align Triangle TDM with NCDOT PTDs Statewide Strategic Plan. Please check here in Feb 2020 for the final updated Plan. 

The Intent to Respond for the FY21 RfP will be released on November 12, 2019. Only those who apply for this, will be eligible to submit a proposal for the FY21 funding cycle. The FY21 RfP is tentatively schedueld to be released in early December after the Intent to Respond has closed.
