Transportation Management Program (TMP)

    Commute Trip Reduction Champions 2015

    Commute Seattle works with the City of Seattle to administer the Transportation Management Program (TMP) for properties. A Transportation Management Program (TMP) is a Master Use Permit requirement on private development to mitigate traffic congestion and parking impacts by reducing drive-alone automobile and motorcycle trips, otherwise known as single-occupant vehicle (SOV) trips. TMPs generally include two parts: 1) an SOV commute rate goal, and 2) a selection of required program elements that are designed to help the building achieve that SOV goal. Some TMPs have unique or parking-based goals that were established with their permit approval.

    Most TMP properties are required to complete TMP Surveys in odd years, and TMP Program Reports in even years. Commute Seattle staff will help you navigate these steps, and are available to consult on how you can elevate your commute programs and amenities to the next level.

    Learn more about TMP requirements at the City of Seattle TMP web page, or through their informational flyer. The 2015 Seattle TMP Director’s Rule includes information about TMP triggers, TMP development, and typical TMP elements.
