Impact of Employer-based Programs on Transit Ridership and Transportation System Performance
This document reports on a study that established a direct quantitative relationship between employer-based Transportation Demand Management (TDM) strategies and the performance of a transportation system. The study objectives were to develop a methodology for measuring the impacts of employer-based TDM programs on the performance of a traffic network using measures universal to traffic operations staff, transportation planners, and decision-makers. The study used a micro-simulation traffic model to simulate the effects of Washington State Commute Trip Reduction (CTR) programs implemented by 189 employers in an 8.6 miles segment of I-5 in the Seattle downtown area.

Economics of Travel Demand Management: Comparative Cost Effectiveness and Public Investment
The 2006 Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement (CMAQ) Program Interim Guidance provides explicit guidelines to program effectiveness assessment and benchmarking by calling for a quantification of benefits, as well as disbenefits, resulting from emission reduction strategies for project selection and evaluation. The objective of this study is to develop a methodology that combines academic and practitioner experiences within a theoretical framework that truly captures consumers' price responsiveness to diverse transportaiton options by embracing the most relevant trade-offs faced under income, modal price and availability constraints.

Commuting to Work Trends in Florida was produced by the US Census Bureau as part of the American Community Survey. This survey is a way to provide the data communities need every year instead of once in ten years. It is an on-going survey that the Census Bureau plans will replace the long form in the 2010 Census. Links to commute information for some Florida counties, MSA/CMSA/PMSA can also be found here.
