In Spring 2012, Transportation Solutions joined forces with the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG) and fellow transportation management organizations (TMOs) around the metro area in a regional effort to reduce the number of drive-alone commuters. Through travel demand management (TDM) programs like Bike to Work Day, RTD ECO and Flex passes, van- and carpool-matching through Way to Go and outreach to employers, community groups, and schools, the Regional TDM Partnership aims to reduce air pollution and traffic congestion, improve access to alternative modes of transportation, and encourage healthy lifestyles.
This Partnership will last two years and is funded through a federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement (CMAQ) grant. By sharing resources and pooling the proven experience and successes of the partners, this program will be an efficient and effective use of taxpayer funds. The Partnership has now launched a new regional campaign, Stop Being an SOV, alongside its new multi-modal program, Way to Go.

To implement the partnership goals in our service area, Transportation Solutions will focus in several key areas:
- EMPLOYER OUTREACH- to reduce demand for parking and implement employee transportation benefits like RTD pass subsidies, van/carpooling programs, commute challenges, and incentives. Join us at our free, quarterly ‘Future of Commuting’ Employer Seminars or sign up for our Employer Newsletter by emailing Erika (below)
- COMMUNITY OUTREACH- reaching out to schools, neighborhoods, religious groups, senior groups and holding Transportation Solutions’ quarterly Community Council meetings
- EVENTS- facilitating Bike to Work Day Breakfast Stations, Cherry Creek Sneak, Cherry Creek Arts Festival, Glendale Metro Mile, Try Transit events, transportation fairs at work sites
- LOCAL POLICIES & PROJECTS- participating in policy creation that encourages walking, biking, and public transit, making presentations to local and regional decision-makers, and working with developers, local governments, and community groups to plan and implement infrastructure and streetscape design that improves walkability and public transit connection
