Sustainable Transportation Planning: Vancouver’s Experience & Future Mobility, Dale Bracewell

In the beginning of July, TG Central Branch and NZ Transport Agency will co-host Dale Bracewell, the Manager of Transportation Planning for the City of Vancouver (Canada), in the Wellington leg of his New Zealand trip.

 

Dale is planning to present on the topic of “Transportation 2040: Vancouver’s Blueprint for Sustainable Transportation”. In this presentation, Dale will introduce ‘Transportation 2040’ which is Vancouver’s high-level vision for all modes of transportation with specific mobility and safety goals.

 

Dale will talk about how Vancouver City achieved its interim target of 50% of all daily trips by sustainable modes and how it is on track to achieve further growth and two-thirds of all daily trips by walking, cycling and transit in 2040.
