What is CCG? Breakfast Session
April 24, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am
WHAT IS CCG?
The Canadian Capacity Guide (CCG, 3rd ed.) is one of the most comprehensive and longest running projects undertaken by CITE. It is endorsed by the Transportation Association of Canada as a national reference on traffic engineering. As featured in Transportation Talk (Winter 2017-2018), over the past year the CITE Traffic Engineering Subcommittee has been engaging in outreach to promote awareness and understanding of the CCG. Among the most exciting recent announcements is that PTV Group has added the CCG as an analysis option in the latest PTV Vistro 6 Traffic Analysis 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.
We invite you to learn more about the latest progress on initiatives related to CCG by attending an overview breakfast session on Tuesday April 24, 2018, and/or participating in a full day methodology and software workshop on Tuesday July 10, 2018.
