ATP TAKEAWAY: Arlington Transportation Partners helps remove 21,000 cars from the road each weekday in Arlington County.

First thing first, what exactly is Transportation Demand Management (TDM)? And how does it make Arlington Transportation Partners (ATP) one of the leading TDM specialists in the country?

Transportation Demand Management is the application of strategies and policies to reduce traffic and congestion by encouraging a shift from single-occupant vehicle trips to options like Metrorail, bus, carpooling, vanpooling, walking, biking, teleworking, flexible/compressed work hours, and ridesharing.

Operating since July 1998, ATP works with employers, residential communities, commercial properties, and schools offering complimentary transportation expertise to help implement and improve commuter benefits and transportation amenities.

We tailor our services to accommodate the needs of our clients and the transportation challenges their business might be facing. Some of our most popular services include our customized Quick Glance that outlines transportation options and resources available to employees, residents or visitors. And to compliment that is a free online brochure service for Arlington County employers, residents, commercial properties and schools.

Other popular services include:

Our programs and services have a remarkable impact on the commuting patterns, traffic congestions and air quality in Arlington County. Read our latest case study from the State Department’s Foreign Service Institute, to see how one survey not only improved commute options (including a new Capital Bikeshare station), but also helped improve infrastructure in the area.

We’re very proud of the TDM work we do and that it helps Arlington thrive. Through combined efforts, Arlington County Commuter Services removes 40,900 cars off the road every day! ATP helps remove 21,800 cars through our services mentioned above.

If you’re ready to help that number grow or your business is thinking about improving current transportation benefit program, email us at

Our team would be happy to help, we’ll even bring our TDM skills!
