Reduce the number of peak -period vehicle trips <br />generated in association with additional development; <br />B. Promote and encourage the use of alternative <br />transportation modes such as ridesharing, carpools, vanpools, <br />public bus and rail transit, bicycles and walking, as well as <br />those facilities that support such modes; <br />C. Achieve related reductions in vehicle trips, traffic <br />congestion, and public expenditure and achieve air quality <br />improvements through utilization of existing local mechanisms <br />and procedures for project review and permit processing; <br />D. Promote coordinated implementation of strategies on <br />a countywide basis to reduce transportation demand; and <br />E. Achieve the most efficient use of local resources <br />through coordinated and consistent regional and/or local <br />transportation demand management programs. <br />
