Using Performance Measurement as a Tool to Demonstrate TDM Success

Categorized Under: Transportation

 

 

This article, written by ICF International's Frank Mongioi, Ryan Thompson, and Sonya Suter, was published in the TDM Review, Winter 2012 issue. In this article, ICF experts discuss the question of how to measure transportation demand management (TDM) success. With limited or even shrinking financial resources, funding agencies continue to ask questions about efficiency, financial accountability, and the value of investments. However, there has not always been a clear answer on the best way to measure TDM programs. Fortunately, the industry is moving in the right direction by using performance measurement as a tool to demonstrate the value of investments and to develop efficiencies—all for the purpose of improving commuter services.
