Tysons Comprehensive Plan - Transportation - Transportation Management


Tysons Comprehensive Plan TransportationThe Comprehensive Plan for the Tysons Corner Urban Center calls for the establishment of a Tysons Corner Transportation Management Association to develop and promote Transportation Demand Management (TDM) programs to stakeholders, major employers and developers in Tysons Corner. TDM refers to a variety of strategies aimed at reducing the demand on the transportation system, particularly to reducing single occupant vehicles during peak periods, and expanding the transportation choices available to residents, employees, shoppers and visitors. The result is a more efficient use of the existing transportation system.

When the four Metrorail stations open in Tysons and denser mixed use transit-oriented development is constructed surrounding the stations, a substantial percentage of travelers are expected to commute via Metrorail without any TDM programs in place. This development pattern will also reduce the need for driving trips because jobs, housing, shopping, recreational and cultural opportunities will be close at hand and accessible by walking or a short transit ride. A broad, systematic, and integrated program of TDM strategies throughout Tysons can further reduce peak period single occupancy vehicle trips, as well as increase the percentage of travelers using transit and non-vehicular modes of transportation. Examples of TDM Measures include:

 

  • Transit and vanpool subsidies
  • Pre-tax deduction of transit and vanpool fares
  • Telework program
  • Carpool and vanpool matching service
  • Shower and locker facilities for bicyclists and walkers
  • Secure and weatherproof bicycle parking
  • Carpool and vanpool preferential parking
  • On-site car-sharing vehicle
  • Employee shuttle
  • Guaranteed Ride Home Program
  • Commuter information center (bulletin board, web site, brochure table)
  • Employee Transportation Coordinator (ETC)
  • Flexible or alternative work hours
  • TDM education programs directed at the public and employers
