Commitment to Bike Transportation Coordination
in the County Global TDM Plan

Mr. Chairman:
As the Board knows, in response to my board matter the County is currently developing a comprehensive Transportation Demand Management Plan (TDM) that can be utilized across the varying areas of the county to mitigate traffic issues. At the start of the development of the Global TDM Plan there was an early recognition of the need to integrate and coordinate the multiple efforts being undertaken to mitigate the effects of traffic. The Global TDM Committee will be coming forward with detailed staffing recommendations during the next budget cycle.

During my recent discussions with members of the Fairfax Advocates for Better Bicyclists it became clear that one component of an effective TDM program includes the utilization of bicycles as a mode of transportation. To make bicycle transportation a viable option, residents need to be aware that biking is an option and must be able to easily access a well developed network of bike trails. Therefore there will be a need to allocate a specific proportion of staff time to coordinating the improvement of cycling opportunities in Fairfax County as part of the Global TDM Plan.


To ensure that cycling is not overlooked as a transportation option, I move that the Board of Supervisors direct the Fairfax County Department of Transportation to allocate a specific proportion of staff time to the Global TDM Plan recommendations to integrate and coordinate bike transportation.
