Commute Solutions

Commute Solutions promotes commuting activities that increase the efficiency and use of existing roadways by reducing the amount of single occupant vehicle trips, decreasing the amount of vehicles traveling during peak congestion hours, shifting traffic from high-congestion roadways to low-congestion roadways, and increasing the use of public transit, carpooling, van pooling, walking, biking, and teleworking.

Planning Commutes

By operating myCommuteSolutions.com, Commute Solutions provides residents living in the CAPCOG region with the opportunity to learn more about their commuting options. The site helps residents find carpooling partners, plan transit trips, map bike routes, and more. It also lets commuters log their commuter miles to see how much fuel they saved, how many calories they burned, or how they benefited the region’s air quality all while providing them incentives.

Commuting Outreach and Education

A large portion of reducing traffic congestion on existing roadways is providing outreach and education about commuting and other activities such as teleworking. The Commute Solutions program manages CommuteSolutions.com to inform area residents, businesses, and government agencies about how they can benefit from other methods of transportation or use other alternatives to reduce traffic. The program also promotes its activities, news about commuting, and other general information on Twitter @CommuteSolution, and on Facebook, https://www.facebook.com/commutesolutions.

Regional Transportation Demand Management (TDM) Coordinating Committee

The Regional TDM Coordinating Committee coordinates TDM activities within the CAPCOG region and assists, advises, and, if appropriate, provides materials that support the CAPCOG Commute Solutions program. The committee seeks to improve transportation outcomes in the region by educating people about their personal transportation decisions in areas of:

  1. reducing unnecessary vehicle trips;
  2. reducing unnecessary vehicle miles traveled;
  3. reducing the percentage of vehicle trips and miles using single-occupancy vehicles;
  4. reducing the number of vehicle trips and vehicle miles traveled along congested roadways during peak congestion periods;
  5. expanding the awareness of and access to mobility options other than single occupancy vehicle commuting, particularly for mobility-challenged individuals and underserved areas;
  6. expanding access to jobs and workers to meet labor needs within the region,
  7. encouraging regional planning activities, policies, and programs that reduce personal transportation demand within the region in terms of trips or vehicle miles traveled; and
  8. coordinating TDM initiatives in the region.
