1 COMMUTING IN THE METRO Roadway Congestion & Mode Share The majority of major roadways in Greater Des Moines are without congestion and have underutilized capacity. This surplus capacity could be used for alternative modes of transportation as a means of meeting the region s long-term goal of decreasing trips by single-occupancy vehicles and increasing trips by active modes of transportation such as walking, biking, and transit. Single-occupancy vehicle commuting remains well above the 2050 target, while alternative modes consisting of 16 percent of commute-to-work mode share have capacity to expand usage before Real-time traffic data for 2015 indicated 92 percent of s in Greater Des Moines are uncongested during peak hours. Congested Roadways 2015 Congested Not Congested Not Monitored 92% of monitored roadway miles in the MPO planning area uncongested during Peak Hours Source: INRIX Peak Hours 7-9 a.m. & 4-6 p.m. Mode Share (Commute to Work) 2Single- Occupancy Vehicle 84% Carpool 9% Bike/Walk/ Other 6% 2 5 ) Transit 1% Investment in alternative modes of transportation through infrastructure, education, and incentives is needed to achieve 2050 mode share targets. Source: U.S. Census Bureau, American Community Survey (ACS) 5-Year Estimates.

2 TRAVEL TIME Travel Time Reliability The majority of major roadways in Greater Des Moines have a travel time index of 1.5 or below. The travel time index compares the average observed travel time along the roadway to the free-flow travel time. For example, a roadway with a roadway with a free-flow travel time of 10 minutes takes a commuter 15 minutes due to additional traffic. The travel time index for the roadway is 1.5. Congestion begins to occur as the travel time index approaches 1.5. Travel Time Index 87% miles with Travel Time Index 1.5 or below Less than Greater than 3.0 Source: INRIX Based on max TTI for Travel Time Index Observed Travel Time = Free-flow Travel Time

3 PLANNING TIME Planning Time The majority of major roadways in Greater Des Moines require users to plan additional time into trips equal to or greater than half the free-flow travel time. The planning time index measures the total time travelers should anticipate to arrive on-time to their destinations. For example, a roadway segment has a travel time of 10 minutes, but the commuter decides to leave 17 minutes prior to their scheduled arrival. The roadway has a planning time of 17 minutes and a planning time index of 1.7. Planning Time Index 52% miles with Planning Time Index below 1.5 Less than Greater than 3.0 Source: INRIX Based on max PTI for Planning Time 95% Travel Time = Index Free-flow Travel Time

4 CONGESTED ROADWAYS Congestion Management Process In early 2016, the Des Moines Area MPO completed an update of the Congestion Management Process (CMP) for Greater Des Moines. The CMP defined a scoring methodology for identifying congested roadways based on the Travel Time and Planning Time Indices. Using the methodology in the CMP, a roadway is considered congested when the combined Travel Time and Planning Time scores are seven (7) points or greater. Using INRIX data collected in 2015, congested roadways along monitored corridors are identified. The tables below provide the scores associated with each index range and the percent of miles in each range by year. Travel Time Index Score Less than % 66% % 22% % 11% % 1% Greater than % 0% Congested Roadways 2014 Congested Roadways 2015 Congested Not Congested Not Monitored 881 monitored roadway miles Source: INRIX, DMAMPO Congestion Score exceeds 7 points at least 1 hour of day Planning Time Index Score Less than % 38% % 16% % 26% % 18% Greater than % 2% Congested Not Congested Not Monitored 1% miles Congested during one hour of day in % miles Congested during one hour of day in 2015 Travel Time Index Score + Planning Time Index Score = Congestion Score 1585 monitored roadway miles Source: INRIX, DMAMPO Congestion Score exceeds 7 points at least 1 hour of day

5 MODE SHARE How We Move The mode that travelers select for their commute is important to planners and engineers as it explains how individuals get around the region. In Greater Des Moines, the vast majority of individuals commute to work by personal vehicles with no other passengers. In 2015, the Des Moines Area MPO piloted a SmartTrips program to encourage walking, biking, and taking transit in an effort to reduce single-occupancy vehicle trips. The pilot program reached approximately 375 households and had a conversion rate (vehicle trips to an alternative mode) of 7 percent.

In March 2016, Greater Des Moines residents began receiving travel surveys as part of the National Household Travel Survey being conducted by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). The Des Moines Area MPO is part of a more in-depth version of the survey which will support the ongoing improvement of the region s transportation network. Conducted every five to seven years, the National Household Travel Survey provides an essential snapshot of transportation behaviors by asking households how their members get around on one particular day. The survey will be conducted through April More information can be found at:

6 COMMUTE TO WORK Commute Trips The average commute time for commuters in Greater Des Moines varies by city based on proximity of jobs to households, employment centers, neighborhoods, and the road network. Overall, Greater Des Moines residents on average commute between 15 and 30 minutes to work. The regional average commute time to work is 20.1 minutes. The median commute distance for the region is 9.1 miles. 20 Average commute time of MPO planning area is 20 minutes 9.1 Median commute distance of MPO planning area is 9.1 miles Commute Time & Distance by City Mean Travel Time (Minutes) Median Commute Distance (Miles) Altoona Ankeny Bondurant Carlisle Clive Des Moines Grimes Johnston Mitchellville Norwalk Pleasant Hill Polk City Urbandale Waukee West Des Moines Windsor Heights Source: U.S. Census Bureau, American Community Survey (ACS) 5-Year Estimates. Transportation Demand Management Strategies Transportation demand management (TDM) strategies have the goal of making transportation more efficient by focusing on the movement of goods and people rather than automobiles and prioritizes alternative modes of transportation to address issues with congestion. The strategies listed below can be effective in reducing single occupancy trips during peak travel times to reduce congestion. Commute Trip Reduction Programs Flextime Transit & Rideshare Improvements Access Management Parking Management & Pricing Traffic Calming Intersection Improvements Telework Encourage commuters to use alternative modes of transportation Flexible work schedules allow employees to commute during off-peak hours Incentives for mode shifts to transit while offering high quality, efficient service Create more pedestrian-friendly network by reducing conflict points with vehicles Price employee parking to deincentivize drive alone trips Reduce vehicle speeds and volumes, increase pedestrian and bicycle trips Improve turn lanes and signal synchonization to move traffic efficiently Encourage employees to work from home to eliminate commute These strategies represent a sample of available options and should be considered as part of a context sensitive approach to roadways design and transportation planning.
