BFA Quarterly Meeting: Why All the Big Buses? Transportation Demand Management in the Bay Area

You’ve seen them‚Ķ or at least heard about them.  Those enormous corporate buses ferrying workers to and from Silicon Valley and other destinations south of the city.  Putting aside the social discourse they’ve created, how much do you actually know about how they fit into the larger Transportation Demand Management (TDM) program model they’re often part of?

In the Bay Area, as in many other major metropolitan areas, TDM programs are required for major real estate development projects to reduce traffic congestion, greenhouse gas emissions and parking demand. They provide a cost-efficient way to grow without having to invest in capital-intensive road and highway infrastructure projects.  At the project level, TDM offers Facilities and Building managers tools to reduce parking demand and address parking capacity issues.  Human Resource managers enjoy recruitment and retention benefit that result from TDM programs (commute programs).

The BioFacility Association invites you to join them for a networking reception and roundtable, where we will discuss Transportation Demand Management (TDM) and whether these programs deliver better environmental outcomes, improved public health, stronger communities, and more prosperous and livable cities compared to traditional development and transit models.

We will discuss:

  • The current state of TDM
  • What’s working and what’s not?
  • How your company can benefit from a strategic TDM program
