M/I HOMES REGIONAL AWARD

TRIANGLE TRANSPORTATION

DEMAND MANAGEMENT PROGRAM

Through the combined

leadership of Triangle J

Council of Governments,

GoTriangle (formerly

Triangle Transit) and signifi-

cant contributions of all of

the regional partners, the

Triangle Region 7-Year Long

Range Travel Demand

Management (TDM) Plan

was adopted in 2007. The

Plan’s goal was to reduce

regional growth in vehicle

miles traveled (VMT) by 25%

from 2007-2015 by imple-

menting TDM strategies

encouraging alternative

commute mode use.

The GoSmart Partnerships

provides a single source of

information and continuity

of programs across the

region for transportation

alternatives for employers,

commuters and students.

Through a collective effort,

a free, voluntary Employee

Commuting Survey is

offered biennially to all

Triangle employers as a

way of measuring progress

over time.

In FY14, the combined

travel impacts and air

quality and energy savings

due to the Triangle TDM

Program were:

• Supported 23,818 alter-

native transportation users

• Avoided 4.2 million

vehicle trips

• Reduced 51.1 million

miles of commuter miles

traveled on regional

roadways

• Saved more than 2

million gallons of gasoline

• Eliminated more than

23 million kilograms of

carbon dioxide (GHG)

emissions, the equivalent to

removing 4,000 passenger

cars.
