TDM is a series of measures promoting alternatives to the single occupant vehicle for reducing traffic congestion and improving air quality by maximizing the use of the existing transportation infrastructure. These measures include carpooling, vanpooling, transit, walking, bicycling, telecommuting, compressed work weeks, etc.

The primary goal of the City’s Employer TDM program is to reduce traffic congestion and improve air quality through the reduction of work-related car trips. The strategy used is the utilization of the technical assistance provided by the TDM Program Manager and the implementation of the 511 Contra Costa Countywide Incentive Programs at employment sites.

Technical assistance, program development, and implementation services available to participating employers include:

  • Coordinate, distribute, and evaluate employee transportation surveys
  • Implement 511 Contra Costa countywide incentive programs for biking, walking, carpooling, vanpooling, transit and a citywide guaranteed ride home program for residents and businesses
  • Coordinate and implement regional commuter campaigns such as; Bike to Work Day, and Spare the Air.
  • Provide "Transportation Options" presentations to employers and employees relocating to San Ramon and other portions of the Southwest Contra Costa County. 
  • Organize and facilitate employer transportation commuter fairs at employment sites. 
  • Facilitate with local transit agencies to develop, increase, and promote transit service
