About VTEN

The Vermont Transportation Efficiency Network (VTEN) is a group of advocates, planners, and providers working together to reduce negative impacts and improve efficiency in Vermont’s transportation sector.

Formed by the High Meadows Fund in 2010, VTEN is now convened by Vital Communities and provides a forum for transportation professionals to network, discuss opportunities, and celebrate success stories.

Tool for Estimating Vehicle Trip Reductions

This document provides guidance on how to estimate vehicle trip reductions from Transportation Demand Management (TDM) measures implemented for new developments. These estimates may inform adjustments to any impact or mitigation fee paid under Act 250 and/or Act 145 proportional to traffic generated by the site. NOTE: This guidance provides a tool to help estimate the potential reduction in vehicle trip generation for TDM strategies in different contexts but is not an adopted policy or standard of the Vermont Agency of Transportation.

Town Commute Data

Richmond Energy Committee and VTEN member Ian Stokes has pulled 2010 Census data on commuting for the whole state, town by town. He can help your community compile miles traveled, the number of commuters by each transportation mode, and estimate the amount of CO2 emitted. Contact Ian here.
