Transportation and Air Quality Control Measures, West Covina, California, 1993
5 minutes Date Enacted: Feb 16, 1993
Link land use, transportation, and air quality decisions; minimize the number of peak period vehicle trips generated by additional development; to promote the use of alternative transportation; to improve air quality; maintain the economic vitality of the region; and by the participation in regional and countywide efforts, improve transportation demand management, and thereby improve the environment of the city.
""Transportation demand management (TDM)" means the alteration of travel behavior, usually on the part of commuters, through programs of incentives, services, and policies. TDM addresses alternatives to single occupant vehicles such as carpooling and vanpooling, and changes in work schedules that move trips out of the peak period or eliminate them altogether (as is the case in telecommuting or compressed work weeks)." p.2
