Congestion Management Process (CMP) / Travel Demand Management (TDM)

 

January 2020 Update:

The CAMPO Executive Board is anticipated to consider approving the Draft Updated TDM Program Goals at their upcoming meeting on January 15, 2020. The public comment period for the draft goals closed on December 20, 2019. 


Congestion Management Process

As a federally-designated Transportation Management Area, the Capital Area MPO must work with regional stakeholders to develop a Congestion Management Process. This effort is overseen by a Congestion Management Process Stakeholder Group. The group works to evaluate the state of the existing transportation system and provide recommendations to the MPO's TCC and Executive Board for projects that will help enhance the system and reduce congestion. 

Transportation Demand Management

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

TDM Oversight Committee

The Triangle TDM Program Oversight Committee is made up of representatives from the three ongoing program funders (NCDOT, CAMPO, and DCHC MPO) and two advisory members (one each from NC Department of Environmental Quality's Division of Air Quality and TJCOG). The Oversight Committee reviews proposals and funding requests, provides comments as appropriate, and approves the budget for the program.  It also provides strategic direction for the program, establishing program priorities and coordinating the program with other transportation initiatives in the region.Org chart demonstrating roles of agencies
