TDM technology has improved in leaps and bounds over the past few years and continues to rapidly evolve. Tools such as dynamic ridematching enable carpools to form on the fly with little pre-planning, while microtransit provides on-demand transit routing. Marketing automation platforms enable simplified structuring of campaigns, follow-up, and contact message targeting, while customer relationship management platforms allow for segmenting user groups while tracking engagement. In this new reality, TDM managers are reimagining TDM programs while considering the impact of these technologies. TDM Technology Roadmaps include steps for creating a future vision, designing the ideal workflow, inventorying existing assets, researching the current marketplace, and pinpointing new assets to procure. Additional tips will be provided on how to explain the benefits of such technology-oriented transitions to stakeholders.
