The mission of the San Mateo County Transportation Demand Management Agency is to reduce the number of single occupancy vehicles traveling in, to and through San Mateo County, reducing vehicle emissions resulting in improved air quality. The "Peninsula Traffic Congestion Relief Alliance" is funded by the City/County Association of Governments of San Mateo County, the San Mateo County Transportation Authority, the Bay Area Air Quality Management District and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission.
The Alliance is dedicated to addressing the challenges involved in getting to and from work in San Mateo County. Our goal is to help people find ways to get to work that are faster, cheaper, and/or easier through commuter information, employer programs, and city transportation demand management partnerships. A major strength of the Alliance is its ability to deal with transportation issues through its extensive network of allies. Creating partnerships provides the power to relieve traffic congestion in San Mateo County.
A representative from the Alliance will be present at the September 18 City Council Meeting to provide the City Council with an update on its current activities. For more information on the Alliance, feel free to visit their website at www.commute.org.
