36 Commuting Solutions works with a regional network of seven transportation management organizations (TMOs) throughout the Denver metro area as official providers of Way to Go.
The strength of a TMO lies in its ability to bring together multiple organizations and individuals to holistically address and accomplish more than any one government agency, employer, developer or resident can. Each group has influence on transportation and air quality issues and contributes significantly to overall solutions. We work together to reduce traffic congestion, improve air quality, and make life better for the region’s residents. Activities range from proving public education about transportation options to taking an active role in site-design elements that effectively impact travel demand.
Regional Transportation Management Organizations
Boulder Transportation Connections
Boulder Transportation Connections (BTC) was formed in 2004. In support of the City of Boulder’s Transportation Master Plan, BTC provides Transportation Demand Management (TDM) services, information, and advocacy to improve access to employment centers, while reducing traffic congestion and resulting air pollution.
Downtown Denver Transportation Management Association
The Downtown Denver Transportation Management Association (DDTMA) was established by the Downtown Denver Partnership in 1995 in response to growing concerns among downtown businesses and visitors on issues relating to air quality, mobility and access into and around downtown. The DDTMA was designed to develop and implement cost-effective programs that improve access, mobility and parking options for Downtown constituents, at the same time reducing traffic congestion and protecting air quality.
Denver South Economic Development Partnership
The Denver South Economic Development Partnership is an organization with one simple, overarching goal in mind: to make sure that the transportation system works hard for everyone who lives and works along the South I-25 Urban Corridor. That mission manifests itself in a number of ways. Denver South EDP strives to monitor transportation demands to ensure that the new light rail lines will consistently deliver convenient, effective and high-quality services to businesses located throughout this corridor. Denver South EDP is your continuous conduit to a wealth of transportation information.
Northeast Transportation Connections
Northeast Transportation Connections was created to promote the use of alternatives to driving solo within and around the developing Stapleton area. The organization creates, promotes and supports transportation options for residents, commuters, students and visitors in and around the Stapleton community.
Transportation Solutions is focused on issues in the Cherry Creek and Glendale areas, as well as the Colorado and University Boulevard corridors. Founded in 1997, Transportation Solutions works to foster a balanced transportation system in the area where people can use a variety of modes to get around.
