Program Details and Partners
Connect, Redwood City!, formerly known as the Making the Last Mile Connection Pilot Program, kicked off in early 2011, and implements a suite of transportation demand management strategies within Redwood City. The goal of the program is to test the contribution that transportation demand management can make toward reducing travel habits away from single-occupancy personal vehicle travel, thereby reducing vehicle miles traveled and greenhouse gas emissions. The program received a $1.5 million grant from the Metropolitan Transportation Commission through its Climate Initiatives Grant Program.
New transportation demand management strategies developed under the grant include car share, short-distance vanpools, and a revamped telecommute program for San Mateo County employees. These strategies will be marketed with existing transportation demand management strategies (including transit, carpooling, and Emergency Ride Home) and with the regional Bay Area Bike Share program, which also is funded under the Climate Initiatives Program.
Connect, Redwood City! is a partnership between the San Mateo County Transit District, the Peninsula Congestion Relief Alliance, San Mateo County, and the City of Redwood City. Funding partners include the San Mateo County Transit District, the San Mateo County Transportation Authority, and the City/County Association of Governments of San Mateo County.
