Last fall, the Goleta City Council approved the establishment of a Transportation Demand Management(TDM) Program for City staff. The program, designed by City staff with help from Traffic Solutions, encourages employees to carpool, take the bus, ride their bikes and walk to work in exchange for a variety of incentives. More employees are using alternative transportation methods to get to work, and those who choose to carpool or use public transportation have access to bicycles (pedal powered and electric) and cars for short trips during the workday.
Since the establishment of the program, staff has achieved the following: Reduced 335 commuter trips to and from work; Saved 1,101 gallons of gas; Reduced emissions by 21,383 pounds. This program supports the ongoing efforts of Go Green Goleta.
