Transportation Demand Management (TDM)

As one of the fastest growing regions in Canada, widening and construction of new roads cannot keep pace with the new trips that are generated from the additional population and employment.

Transportation Planning has undertaken the Transportation Demand Management Study to examine options to reduce travel demand. The goal of this initiative is to review the current position and programs in Peel Region and to recommend appropriate updated policies/programs to use more sustainable modes of transportation such as public transit, carpool, vanpool, bicycle and walk to reduce vehicle trips.

Transportation Planning was recently featured on Rogers First Local, talking about plans to tackle our gridlock and pollution. Peel Region is working closely with stakeholders in both public and private sectors to develop ways to reduce cars on the road. Tom AppaRao, Director of Transportation Planning, shares information about Transportation Demand Management, Goods Movement and future transportation plans for the Region of Peel.

The video of the interview, courtesy of Rogers Television, is approximately 7 minutes in length.

The objectives of the Travel Demand Management Study include:

  • A review of current policies
  • Consultation with key stakeholders
  • Development and assessment of TDM options for implementation
  • Identification of the need for further data collection
  • Evaluation and recommendations on performance indicators

The report was completed in June, 2004.

In 2005, Peel partnered with the Mississauga Board of Trade, City of Mississauga, Brampton Board of Trade, City of Brampton, Caledon Chamber of Commerce and Town of Caledon in the creation of two Transportation Management Associations - Smart Commute Mississauga and Smart Commute Brampton-Caledon.
