ITE Manitoba June Luncheon

The June meeting of the ITE Manitoba Section will be held on Tuesday, June 25, 2019 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 the Adam Budowski, M.Sc., EIT, from Winnipeg Transit.
Adam is a transportation engineer who recently graduated from the University of Manitoba with a Master’s of Science in Civil Engineering. After graduation, Adam spent nearly two years in Montreal working with Eco-Counter, a world leader in active transportation monitoring, as a research consultant. Since returning home to Winnipeg, Adam worked with the Federal Government (Indigenous Services), before accepting a Transit Planner position with Winnipeg Transit.
Adam’s presentation is titled: Way of the Future: Integrating Bus Routes in southwest Winnipeg with the Southwest Transitway.
Adam’s presentation will outline the process undertaken to integrate bus routes in southwest Winnipeg with the Southwest Transitway, which will open to passengers in April, 2020. Winnipeg Transit is proposing a new type of service model that will involve creating 13 new routes, making changes to 8 existing routes, and cancelling 18 existing routes. The proposed service plan was taken to the public during a one-month public engagement campaign. Winnipeggers had the opportunity to share their input with the project team through an online survey, project email and phone line, and in-person at seven “portable” open house events. Public input gathered during engagement was used to help refine the proposed network which will be brought forward to City Council this summer.
When registering online, the price of the luncheon is $26.00 for members and friends and $15.00 for students. Online registration and payment must be completed by 4:00 PM on Thursday, June 20, 2019.
NEW: If the online registration deadline is missed, the cost to pay at the door is $30.
Hope to see you there!
