Building a Multimodal Future shows how planning land uses and transportation together with transportation demand management (TDM) policies creates safer, more walkable environments. TDM encourages travellers to maximize use of available transportation systems in the most efficient and effective ways possible, thus balancing the demand for and capacity of current transportation networks. As such, TDM policies catalyze creation of new property-based transportation amenities that allow real estate developments to increase density and better use transportation infrastructure while reducing the impact on traffic congestion and the need to construct expensive structured parking.In this book, authors Schor and Tallis explore the origin, implementation, best practices, and results of TDM policies from 10 distinctive communities across the U.S. Uniquely, it includes the perspectives of those who implement these policies and those who are affected by them, including property owners, developers, managers, and other professionals who work with TDM policies. With these real-world examples, you can learn how to establish TDM policies in your own projects and urban areas to improve your bottom line while creating a sense of community for all.
