Program description

The concept of Active Transportation and Demand Management (ATDM) came, in part, from two International Technology Scanning studies jointly sponsored by FHWA, AASHTO, and NCHRP. The resulting reports are: Active Traffic Management: The Next Step in Congestion Management, March 2007 and Managing Travel Demand: Applying European Perspectives to US Practice, May 2006. Active Transportation and Demand Management is an integrated approach to dynamically managing travel demand and traffic demand and available capacity of transportation facilities. It complements traditional travel demand and traffic management strategies, which tend to be static and/or reactive measures, with one or a combination of operational strategies that are tailored to real-time or predictive conditions (e.g. regional events and other demand drivers, traffic conditions, weather conditions, incidents, etc.).
