ITE Vancouver Island Luncheon: Transit Futures – BC Transit’s strategic priorities for the Victoria Regional Transit System
March 14, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm PDTFree
Transit has tremendous potential to contribute to more livable and sustainable communities. The need to realize this potential is increasingly important because of factors such as climate change, population growth, increasing traffic congestion and an aging demographic. Meeting these demands requires a shift in focus from moving vehicles to moving people.
This presentation will provide an overview of BC Transit’s strategic priorities for the Victoria Regional Transit System as outlined in the Transit Future Plan and focuses on the relationship between land use policies and transportation planning. Recent initiatives to improve transit reliability and travel times in the Victoria region will be discussed.
The planning team at BC Transit enables communities across British Columbia to create efficient and effective public transit systems.
Lindsay Taylor is a transit planner at BC Transit for the Victoria Regional Transit System and holds a Masters in Environmental Education and Communication from Royal Roads University.
