Transportation Demand Management (TDM) uses policies, infrastructure improvements, and programs to make it easier to travel without a vehicle for everyday trips. TDM works with the existing transportation system to expand mobility options and accommodate future growth by effectively managing travel demands of a region through the promotion of biking, walking, scootering, taking transit, carpooling, telecommuting, etc. TDM programs and tools also promote more substantial environmental, health, and community benefits.

TRPA’s regional transportation demand management initiative to encourage residents and visitors to use non-auto modes of travel. The Linking Tahoe website (www.linkingtahoe.com) is a one-stop shop for travel information to, through, and within Lake Tahoe. The website will host the future desktop travel planning tool. Outreach for the Linking Tahoe program currently includes seasonal (winter and summer) brochure distribution to lodging sites, retailers, and recreation destinations around the Region.
