The current Statewide Active Transportation Demand Management (ATDM) program is nearing the end of its contract period. This assignment will assist NYSDOT in setting a strategic direction and executing a procurement strategy for a new Statewide Mobility Services Program, building on the strengths of the evolving ATDM Program while leveraging the opportunities now available in the private marketplace.
NYSDOT has operated TDM programs to promote and facilitate the shifting of travel and commute trips from single-occupant vehicles to more efficient modes such as carpooling, vanpooling, transit, walking and biking. The current contract, begun in 2015, re-focused the program as an “ATDM program.” Demand management strategies are increasingly applied within the broader context of Transportation System Management and Operation (TSMO), such as during construction, emergency, and special event management strategies and in multimodal Integrated Corridor Management (ICM). This program’s evolution toward more dynamic integrated mobility strategies occurred in parallel with transformative changes in the marketplace for transportation services. The private sector in mobility services (transportation networking companies, micromobility, Mobility as a Service, etc.) and crowd-sourcing platforms for real-time information on routing, modes, and parking have created tremendous opportunities and challenges to DOTs and transit agencies in how best to support efficient and sustainable transportation.
