Reducing traffic congestion while improving access and mobility will require a combination of coordinated initiatives that include the use of transportation demand management (TDM) strategies. TDM is a growing transportation specialization that needs more practitioners with education and training in the development, planning, application and evaluation of TDM programs. TDM is the set of strategies that influences travelers’ decisions to travel by choice of travel mode, trip timing, travel frequency, as well as route, facility and destination selection. The Association for Commuter Transportation (ACT), the premier international professional organization for TDM professionals, has established the TDM-CP professional certification in 2020, to elevate recognition of the TDM field and the level of expertise in TDM implementation. ACT seeks the development of a study guide for TDM-CP exam candidates. This project will develop the content and text for the first of four TDM knowledge domains represented on the exam.
