TRANSPORTATION VISION Reduced Auto Dependence Transportation Vision
Approach to Formulating Transportation Alternatives Eliminate capacity deficiencies Consideration of past proposals Review of current ad hoc proposals Transit accessibility analysis
DURHAM REGION PEEL REGION YORK REGION Transportation Planning Urban Development Services Inner Cordon Outer Cordon Demand Capacity Deficiency Deficiency Analysis Approach
Airport Link Waterfront LRT Finch Hydro Corridor Busway Current Ad-Hoc Proposals
Improve Transit Accessibility to Rapid Transit Connectivity of existing network Coverage to penetrate new areas Connections with regional services
Employment Accessibility within 30 Minutes by Transit
Population Concentrations with Poor Transit Accessibility to Employment
Transit Travel Time (min) (No. of Zones) 60 to80 (11) 50 to60 (31) 40 to50 (169) 30 to40 (199) 0 to30 (50) A.M. Peak Average Transit Trip Times
Population Concentrations with Transit Trip Times > 40 Min.
Affected Population in Areas of Poor Transit Accessibility
Areas of Poor Transit Accessibility
Transportation Alternatives to Serve Areas of Poor Transit Accessibility New GO/RT Interchange
Example of Network Formulation New GO/RT Interchange
NEXT STEPS Evaluate each alternative or in combination Determine their priority based ridership modal split whether it support urban structure etc.
