Stanford Transportation provides sustainable transportation and parking options for the main campus and Stanford Redwood City. Stanford Transportation seeks to reduce transportation-related emissions and pollution, as well as traffic-related impacts on land use and our neighboring communities.
In 2002, Stanford expanded its Transportation Demand Management (TDM) program, which has some of the most extensive reduction strategies in the country. The program was developed to meet peak-trip reduction goals outlined in the 2000 General Use Permit issued by the County of Santa Clara, which governs campus growth and development. In addition to reducing peak-hour trips, Stanford’s TDM program aims to reduce university-related traffic emissions, congestion, and parking demand. Thanks to its program, Stanford has met and plans to continue to meet the "No Net New Peak-Hour Commute Trips" standard.
