Encouraging Active Ways of Moving People in Greater Sudbury

WSP / MMM Group have been retained to develop a Transportation Demand Management (TDM) Plan for presentation to the Operations Committee of Greater Sudbury Council prior to March 2018.

Residents are invited to complete a survey which will provide the City with important information to develop the TDM Plan that will focus on moving people, rather than vehicles, throughout the City of Greater Sudbury.

The Transportation Demand Management (TDM) Plan Community Survey is available online by following this link and at Greater Sudbury Public Libraries. Survey responses will be received until June 9, 2017 at midnight

In December 2016, Greater Sudbury Council adopted a Transportation Master Plan for the City of Greater Sudbury. The Master Plan recommends a sustainable approach to planning and managing transportation networks in the city by making the most effective use of transportation facilities for motorists, public transit, cyclists and pedestrians.

Transportation Demand Management can maximize investments in a sustainable transportation network.  An effective plan has potential to support land use policies, encourage more sustainable modes of transportation, reduce traffic congestion and improve air quality by introducing tools and strategies that can influence personal travel habits.

The survey asks residents questions about their current transportation choices to better understand what might encourage people to consider using modes of transportation that do not require a private vehicle, such as public transit, walking, cycling, carpooling, cabs, ride sharing and flexible work hours, as well as proposed solutions to make these alternatives more appealing.

Results will help the municipality develop long-term policies, programs, services and products that can influence how, when and where individuals travel through the community.

For example, new incentives may encourage individuals to choose walking, cycling, carpooling or public transit instead of driving alone. Individuals may be encouraged to travel less by working from home or by combining several errands in one trip. The environmental impact of each vehicle trip may be reduced by encouraging travel during off-peak hours.

The following diagram shows examples of the types of policies, programs, services and products that could be included in a TDM Plan for Greater Sudbury.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It is important to note that aTDM Plan is not a substitute for infrastructure, vehicles and services that people use to travel nor is it a substitute for land use planning. Rather, TDM is meant to complement all approaches to connect people and places within the community.

The full TDM Plan Report to the Operations Committee of Greater Sudbury Council is available by following this link.

Greater Sudbury’s Transportation Demand Management Plan is made possible by the Canada-Ontario Public Transit Infrastructure Fund (PTIF). The Government of Canada is cost-matching a municipal investment of $27,500 for the plan under the administration of the Ontario Ministry of Transportation.
