*One Day Training Course on “Transportation Demand Management” a
Post-Event to the BAQ 2010, Singapore*
Transportation Demand Management (TDM), also called Travel Demand
Management, aims to maximize the efficiency of urban transport systems
by discouraging unnecessary private vehicle use and promoting more
effective, healthy and environment-friendly modes of transport, namely
public transport and non-motorised transport.
Various cities in the developing world are grappling with the situation
of increasing motorisation. In such a position TDM offers favourable
measures to tackle the problem. The TDM measures can be broadly
classified into "PUSH" and "PULL" measures. These measures include the
design related changes, improving public transport, non-motorised
transport and also economic instruments.
In an effort to increase the awareness on TDM among the various
stakeholders in transport especially the policy makers in developing
cities, the German Technical Cooperation (GTZ) along with LTA Academy,
Land Transport Authority of Singapore (LTA), and the Clean Air
Initiative (CAI) - Asia is organising a one day training course. This
course will be held as a post event to the Better Air Quality (BAQ) 2010
Conference. The course will be conducted in English and is open for all
the BAQ participants and also other interested parties. The course is
expected to address the various "PUSH" and "PULL" measures of TDM with
various examples from the developed world.
This event will be held at the LTA Academy, Land Transport Authority of
Singapore (LTA) in cooperation with the Better Air Quality (BAQ) 2010
conference on November 12, 2010. Due to limited availability of seats,
we request you to register early (at no charges).
