CDOT Awards Commuting Solutions Grant to Help Manage Congestion, Reduce Emissions

The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) awarded Commuting Solutions a $50,000 grant to conduct an analysis of local governments’ existing parking and land use policies and to create a toolkit for best practices for local land use policy and development review.

Commuting Solutions will partner with the City of Lafayette, City of Longmont, City of Louisville, the City & County of Broomfield, City of Westminster, Town of Erie and Town of Superior to implement the project. 

CDOT awarded $492,000 in grants to communities and organizations throughout the state to help relieve traffic congestion and lower greenhouse gas emissions from driving through “transportation demand management.”

Transportation demand management, increasingly being adopted by cities and states, is the use of strategies to provide travelers with more travel choices than simply single-vehicle occupancy driving. These choices can include mode, route and time of travel and work location. Providing these choices doesn’t just reduce congestion and emissions; it increases trip reliability.
