The December meeting of the ITE Manitoba Section will be held on Thursday, December 13, 2018 starting at 12:00 PM.
The luncheon will be held at the Winnipeg Winter Club, at 200 River Avenue. Parking is provided south of the building, and is accessible from Harkness Avenue and from Bell Avenue (via Donald Street). The main building entrance is on the south side of the building. Our Meeting will take place in the Riverview Room.
Our presenter this month is Jeremy Finkleman, MCIP, RPP, from Urban Systems.
Jeremy is a transportation planner and new mobility specialist with a strong background in transportation business cases, traffic operational analysis, traffic modeling, multi-modal integrated planning studies, transit planning, and transportation impact assessments. He is pioneering a new practice area in car sharing, where he advises clients on how to best leverage new mobility applications in the pursuit of strategic goals. Over the past three years, Jeremy has spearheaded a process to develop 21st century tools to streamline transportation network assessments and planning, working in tandem with a global GPS firm to develop in-vehicle methods of operationalizing big data offerings to assess roadway delays, speeds, and traffic volumes. Additionally, Jeremy is co-leading Urban System’s emerging Automated Vehicle practice.
Jeremy’s presentation is titled: Tomorrow’s Transportation Revolution.
Jeremy’s presentation will share some of the key insights gathered from an on-line survey on people’s perceptions of how autonomous vehicles may impact their lives. Survey questions were framed to provide insights on AV implications on willingness to travel longer distances, land use, impacts on vehicle kilometres travelled (VKT), parking, multi-modality (including willingness to use transit in an AV-dominant system), and opportunities for vehicle reduction. The presentation will also outline next steps municipalities and agencies could take to ensure they are planning proactively for this seismic shift to the transportation network.
Registration and online payment MUST be completed by 4:00 PM on Monday, December 10th, 2018.
Hope to see you there!
