Our Five State TDM Partners

Commute Friendly NC is the result of a long collaborative effort and strong partnership between five NC State Transportation Demand Management (TDM) Partners: Land of Sky Regional Council (LOSRC), Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS), City of Wilmington (GoCoast), Piedmont Authority for Regional Transit (PART) and Triangle Transportation Choices (TJCOG). Two other NC agencies – Sustain Charlotte and Go Traingle- also equally contributed to this collaborative process.

Triangle Transportation Choices has been administered by TJCOG (Triangle J Council of Governments) since its very inception in 2008. Implemented by more than fourteen major employers in the Triangle area, including the universities, it aims to reduce reliance on single-occupancy vehicles (SOV) by encouraging alternative options such as carpooling, vanpooling, public transit, biking, walking, teleworking, and flexible work weeks.

Go Coast provides alternative and sustainable transportation options to those who live, work, and play in the Cape Fear Region. Go Coast emphasizes the movement of people rather than motor vehicles. The main goal is to mitigate the growth of traffic congestion by encouraging the use of alternative transportation; so that while the population grows, your commute time stays the same.

The Piedmont Authority for Regional Transportation (PART) is a unit of local government created in 1997 to enhance all forms of transportation in the Piedmont Triad Region. Along with its partners, the program strives to enhance mobility, address congestion, and reduce transportation related impacts on our air quality.

The Employee Transportation Coordinator (ETC) program is a resource for employers to offer transit information and benefits to their employees, and a partnership with CATS (Charlotte Area Transit System). The program works by designating a person in organizations to coordinate transit benefit activities, in order to receive benefits.

The French Broad River MPO’s TDM program aims to promote active transportation, public transit, carpools, and vanpools. We aspire to reduce the number of single vehicle trips taken in our region and educate the community about the benefits of a transportation system with multimodal options. Our TDM program aims to promote transportation networks that are accessible, direct, and continuous, and improve safety for everyone using the roadway.
