City of Raleigh
According to Forbes magazine, Raleigh is the fourth fastest growing city in the United States. Transportation demand management is an effective tool to manage this increase in workers commuting while not having a corresponding growth in road infrastructure and parking. Commuters to Raleigh may take advantage of vanpooling, carpooling, taking transit, bicycling or walking to work as alternatives to driving alone.
CommuteSmart Consultants provides commuter assistance through their employers. Transportation Alternatives to driving alone save money and reduce stress for employees. Employers who provide commuter benefits for their workforce gain several advantages for their company. Providing commuter benefits can help your company by:
- Attracting and retaining workers
- Minimizing payroll taxes

The Town of Apex is named as one of the best places to live in North Carolina. With our historic charm, prime location to major cities and universities, and small-town feel; we have a few reasons to say Apex is, “The Peak of Good Living”. To further that notion, we have established GoApex Route 1, our first local bus service expected to launch late Summer 2021. The Town is also initiating a Transportation Demand Management Program (TDM). Regional TDM Programs provide commuter assistance by partnering with employers. This includes providing transportation alternatives to driving alone, tips to save money, and reducing stress for employees. Employers who provide commuter benefits are able to attract and retain workers, reduce air pollution and conserve energy, and demonstrate company support of work-life balance. Initially, the Town’s TDM Program will focus on the marketing, education, and outreach campaign for GoApex and connecting Apex with resources associated with the regional TDM Program.
