Commute Options are intended to reduce traffic congestion and air pollution by eliminating single occupancy vehicle (SOV) trips and/or decreasing the length of those SOV trips. Transportation Demand Management (TDM) encompasses a set of strategies to increase the use of commute options. The Atlanta Regional Commission's (ARC) Transportation Access and Mobility Division, under the Georgia Commute Options program, serves as the focal point for providing TDM to the Atlanta region.

Regional TDM Plan
In June 2012, ARC initiated development of the Atlanta region's first ever Regional Transportation Demand Management (TDM) Plan. This TDM Plan will be a long-range plan that will define a strategic framework for developing and integrating TDM strategies into planning, project development, and system operations investment decision-making. It is intended to build off the region’s current long-range comprehensive plan,PLAN 2040, and provide input into the update of future regional plans and programs.
