ITE Toronto: Multi-Modal Transportation Analysis – Panel Discussion
October 10, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm$5 – $20
As the transportation network in the GTA becomes increasingly congested, non-vehicular modes of transportation are becoming increasingly important for reasons of health, safety, public realm improvement and congestion reduction. As a result, multi-modal transportation analysis for new developments is becoming an increasingly central component of transportation impact studies in the urban context.

The purpose of this interactive session will be to discuss key aspects of multi-modal analysis from a range of perspectives including review agencies, public realm designers, transportation consultants and technical analysis groups.
Our invited panel speakers, from a diverse range of backgrounds, will be invited to speak briefly on the topic from their unique perspective. Then we will delve into discussion on key topics both prepared and raised by the audience. The audience will be invited to participate in the discussion.
