Mobility Management (also called Transportation Demand Management or TDM) consists of various policies and programs that change travel behavior in order to increase transport system efficiency. It includes strategies that improved travel options, incentives to use the most efficient option for each trip, and more accessible land use patterns. Mobility management can provide various economic, social and environmental benefits. Conventional transportation evaluation practices tend to overlook and undervalue many of these benefits. More comprehensive analysis tends to support more mobility management implementation, and can help optimize mobility management policies and programs. This guide provides guidance for comprehensive mobility management evaluation. Examples illustrate how such analysis can be applied in particular situations.
