• Transportation Demand Management (TDM)

    ​Transportation Demand Management (TDM) programs promote the use of all transportation options available, rather than defaulting to single occupant vehicle use. Included among these travel options are carpooling, vanpooling, teleworking, transit, bicycle, flexible work hours, compressed work weeks and parking policies/pricing structures. The NCDOT Integrated Mobility Division (IMD) funds TDM programs to continue supporting the provisions of the Ambient Air Quality Improvement Act of 1999, Senate Bill 953, which addressed concerns over ground level ozone pollution from motor vehicles and the need to deal with increasing vehicle miles traveled (VMT) and NOx emissions. The bill established a goal of reducing the growth of commuter VMT in the state by 25 percent from 2000 until 2009 and that goal was achieved. Continuing strides have been made in the years following this achievement. ​

  • Commute Friendly NC

    Commute Friendly NC​ is a statewide recognition program that offers a simple and easy platform to celebrate leadership of all the businesses and organizations (large and small), throughout the NC State, who are taking valuable steps to support and shift single-occupancy, car-driven trips of their employees to alternative sustainable modes, such as carpool, vanpool, telework, public transit, biking, walking and flexible work weeks. The program is funded by NC Department of Transportation (NCDOT). 

    Led by Central Pines Regional Council (CPRC), the program has been developed by a strong, collaborative partnership of seven statewide agencies:

    Land of Sky Regional Council (LOSRC), Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS), GoCoast (Wilmington), Piedmont Authority for Regional Transit (PART), GoTriangle (Regional Transit Agency), Sustain Charlotte (Non- profit, Charlotte) and Triangle Transportation Choices (CPRC).​
