Quantifying Travel Impacts Mobility management benefits depend on the travel impacts that result, as summarized in Table 17. For example, strategies that reduce peak-period trips reduce traffic congestion, and strategies that reduce vehicle trips reduce parking costs. Benefits may vary depending on circumstances. For example, shifts from automobile to walk-transit provide parking cost savings, but shifts from automobile to auto-transit only reduce parking costs if park-and-ride parking is cheaper to provide than parking at the trip destination.

9 = helps achieve that objective.

Table 18 summarized the typical travel impacts of various types of mobility management strategies. This can help identify the categories of benefits they provide.

Travel Impacts of Common TDM Strategies

Strategy

Travel Impact

Increased automobile user charges (fuel, VMT and parking charges)

Reduced automobile use, including reduced total travel and shifts to other modes

Congestion pricing

Reduces vehicle travel on congested roads, including changes in travel times, routes, and modes, and reductions in total travel

Transit service improvements and promotion

Increased bus use, mode shifts from automobile, improved service for existing transit users, increased travel by non-drivers

Rideshare matching and promotion

Increase vehicle occupancy, reduced automobile use Increased walking and bicycling, mode shifts from automobile

Pedestrian and bicycle facility improvements and promotion

Flextime promotion Telecommuting promotion Transportation-efficient land use Comprehensive TDM programs

Automobile trips shifted from peak to off-peak Reduced commute travel. Some increases in other types of travel Reduced vehicle trips and trip lengths Various types of travel changes
