The project objective was to develop a standardized, repeatable method of calculating Vehicle Kilometres Travelled (VKT) that could be used nation-wide. The data on which the method is based should be measurable, easy to understand and simple and cost-effective to collect. The resulting VKT estimates would allow for more meaningful comparison and benchmark among Canadian cities.
The CITE members’ survey was conducted in June 2011. The survey provided valuable information regarding current VKT calculation methodologies in Canadian municipalities. The survey results can be found in Appendix B of the final draft Information Report.
