The SANDAG Vision for Transportation Demand Management
Since 1995, SANDAG has operated a regional Transportation Demand Management (TDM) program responsible for planning and implementing strategies for reducing drive-alone trips. TDM is a key component of San Diego Forward: The Regional Plan to achieve greenhouse gas reduction targets set by the California Air Resources Board in response to Senate Bill 375. The plan to manage demand is based on proven strategies as well as new and innovative solutions that serve to enhance mobility for the region. Recognizing the mobility landscape is rapidly changing, the SANDAG TDM program is leveraging technology, emerging transportation services, and public-private partnerships to expand transportation choices. SANDAG’s recent designation by the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) as an Autonomous Vehicle Proving Ground is just one example of an innovative pilot project that will position the San Diego region as a leader in advancing transportation technologies that improve safety, sustainability, and mobility for the region.

The individual selected will develop and foster strategic partnerships with a broad range of public and private sector stakeholders affiliated with the San Diego Regional Proving Ground pilot project.
