CANADIAN CAPACITY GUIDE METHODOLOGY & PTV VISTRO SOFTWARE WORKSHOP
July 10, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm$150 – $450
In coordination with the CITE Training Committee, the CITE Traffic Engineering Subcommittee and PTV Group are pleased to invite you to a full day training session on Tuesday, July 10, 2018 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. at 40 St. Clair West (Third Floor, Room A) in Toronto. It will include a morning of discussion on the core principles and basic theory behind intersection capacity analysis—with emphasis on the Canadian Capacity Guide for Signalized Intersections (CCG)—followed by an afternoon workshop using the latest Vistro 6 Traffic Analysis Software from PTV. You are encouraged to register early, as there is limited space available. Further information is provided below.
The Third Edition of the CCG is one of the most comprehensive and longest running projects undertaken by CITE and is endorsed by the Transportation Association of Canada as a national reference on traffic engineering. As was featured in Transportation Talk (Winter 2017-2018), over the past year, volunteers from the CITE Traffic Engineering Subcommittee have been pursuing various initiatives to reinvigorate awareness of the CCG; among the most exciting recent announcements is that PTV Group added the CCG as a new analysis option in the latest PTV Vistro Software, alongside other alternative methodologies like the Highway Capacity Manual. This inclusion will help support the use of the CCG by providing a modern and functional platform to implement the methodology.
- In the morning, Chris Blackwood, B.A., B.Sc., Dipl.T., C.E.T., who has over 30 years of experience in traffic engineering instruction, will provide an introduction to the terminology, structure and procedures of the CCG, along with detailed discussions on saturation flow rates and adjustments, measures of effectiveness and other relevant topics.
- Following a lunch and networking break, an experienced instructor from the PTV Team will lead a workshop on how to analyze signalized intersections using the CCG methodology option in the PTV Vistro Software; additionally, an overview of how to conduct traffic studies, evaluate development impacts and optimize signals using PTV Vistro will also be covered. The PTV trainers are well versed in intersection capacity analyses and provide numerous software trainings annually.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND AND WHY:
- Regardless of your affiliation, whether governing agency, consulting or academia, we believe this will be highly beneficial as a refresher or introduction because of its focus on understanding some of the basic methods and procedures of intersection capacity analysis.
- This also offers an exciting chance to be guided through some of the newest features of the PTV Vistro Software.
FEES AND REGISTRATION:
The fee is $350 for ITE members, $450 for non-members, $150 for students (limit of five) and $150 for employees of the MTO. Lunch will be provided. Purchase a ticket to attend this workshop below.
