The Tukwila Transportation Demand Management (TDM) Team provides programs that improve congestion, reduce fuel consumption and improve air quality for the cites of Tukwila, Renton, Kent, SeaTac, Burien, and Federal Way. These programs are possible thanks to federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program (CMAQ) funding and a King County Metro Regional Mobility Grant.
The TDM Team works with Tukwila and South King County under the brand name of “South King County Transportation Options.” We offer trip reduction services to businesses, organizations and residents within Tukwila and partner cities.
Tukwila Bike Rack Program
The City of Tukwila is installing bike racks around the city to encourage active transportation (bicycling or walking) and transit use. Bike racks available starting in late Spring 2017. There are limited quantities available. To be approved bike rack requests will be reviewed to determine adequate installation space.
The Small Grant Programs for pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure improvements and trip reduction assistance are currently being implemented. Thank you to everyone who submitted an application!

Partnerships and Rewards!
Tukwila’s CMAQ award enabled a partnership with Hopelink’s Mobility Management Team. The Mobility Management Team works to “empower the community by facilitating access, supporting the coordination of special needs transportation through cross-sector collaborations to improve transportation services and providing travel education and resources to build awareness of existing transportation options.” Through collaboration we developed the Tukwila Transportation Resource Guide and Tukwila Mobility Quick Reference Guide.
