Transportation is the single largest source of U.S. carbon emissions, making shifting trips from personal vehicles to transit, walking, and biking central to tackling climate change, and keeping the world in line with the goals of the Paris Agreement.
Hear from four Climate Challenge cities—Austin, Minneapolis, Seattle, Washington, DC—about how they are increasing transit, carpooling, and active transportation trips through robust transportation demand management (TDM) programs. Panelists will discuss TDM strategies that are moving the needle and bringing them closer to reaching their carbon reduction goals. This panel will highlight lessons learned and best practices in employer transportation programs, transit and active transportation infrastructure funding mechanisms, integrating land use and transportation plans, and more. For a lower carbon future, come with all your burning TDM questions!
