Program Specialist II --
TDM Administration & Compliance Coordinator
Rockville, MD, US
The Montgomery County Department of Transportation’s (MCDOT) mission is to move people and connect places with the best transportation choices and services. MCDOT is seeking a candidate for a Program Specialist II position in the Director’s Office, Office of Transportation Policy, Commuter Services Section. The mission of Commuter Services is to implement Transportation Demand Management (TDM) programs and services to reduce single-occupant driving and promote the adoption of alternative modes of transport, reduce traffic congestion, improve air quality, and promote sustainable transportation to help the County and the region achieve their climate goals. Alternative modes include transit of all types, car/vanpooling, biking and other micro-mobility modes, walking, and telework.
This position is a critical component of implementation efforts for the County’s TDM program. Montgomery County is one of the nation’s leaders in implementing TDM and in local action on climate change. In 2018 the County Council adopted emergency legislation to reduce greenhouse gases to net zero by 2035. In 2020 the County adopted its Climate Action Plan, a roadmap to achieving those goals. MCDOT’s TDM program is a critical component of that effort. The County recently adopted legislation expanding the application of TDM and adopting goals for all parts of the County except the Agricultural Reserve and implementing a revised approach to requirements for TDM strategies to be adopted by businesses and development projects. Those goals, along with recently adopted County Code TDM provisions and regulations, form an underpinning for much of the work of Commuter Services and are the basis for the responsibilities of the TDM Administration and Compliance Coordinator position.
