ITE Toronto Section: Webinar “Are Vehicle Travel Reduction Targets Justified?”

July 25@12:00 pm to 1:00 pm EDT

Virtual Event Virtual Event
Free

This webinar will discuss why many jurisdictions are establishing vehicle travel reduction targets and how transportation agencies can help achieve those goals. Vehicle travel reduction targets represent a shift from mobility-based planning, which assumes that the goal is to maximize traffic speeds, to accessibility-based planning which strives to minimize the amount of travel required to access services and activities. Vehicle travel reduction targets reduce investments in roadway expansions and parking subsidies, and increase support for multimodal planning, improved connectivity, TDM programs and Smart Growth development policies. These shifts respond to changing user demands and provide many economic, social and environmental benefits. This webinar should be of interest to anybody who wants to help create a more efficient and equitable transportation system.
