Stanford’s Transportation Demand Management (TDM) program, which includes initiatives designed to reduce the number of single occupancy drivers to and from campus, has been highly successful and decreased the drive-alone rate of Stanford commuters.

To continue to prevent new vehicle traffic from coming to or leaving campus, Stanford is exploring future Transportation Demand Management (TDM) strategies that are outlined in the Stanford Transportation Strategy Booklet.
Energized and invigorated
"Cycling to and from work leaves me feeling both energized and invigorated. Like all forms of exercise, you think it will TAKE more energy than you have to give, but the inverse is true—you are left with MORE energy and confidence than you would ever believe possible before you begin."
