Liz Horman, PBOT Transportation Demand Specialist

The City of Portland has several adopted goals related to reducing the number of drive-alone trips on our roads, which negatively impact our climate, health and community. To date, PBOT has developed a number of programs (such as SmartTrips, the Transportation Wallet, Sunday Parkways and Safe Routes to School) that aim to help manage demand for our roadways and increase use of active transportation options. While many of these programs are popular and have a positive impact, we need to take a strategic look at which transportation demand management (TDM) strategies are most effective at reaching our mobility, equity and climate goals and best serve the needs of our community. Liz Hormann will discuss the City’s developing approach to reducing single-occupancy vehicle trips through TDM programming and policy and the upcoming TDM Action Plan
