The draft Master Transportation Plan (MTP) is now available. The MTP provides a framework for how the City of Vernon will manage its transportation network over the next twenty five years.

This MTP will build on previous successes, and meet the new and emerging challenges of a changing world. Given finite resources and practical constraints, achieving our goals requires us to prioritize our efforts and explore innovative funding and design solutions. This plan aims to increase the functionality, convenience, attractiveness, and safety of all modes of transportation by providing a network that meets the needs of all users, all ages, all income levels, and all levels of mobility. It is not always possible to accommodate all users with the highest level of service in every street, particularly when right-of-way is limited.

There is often the need for trade-offs between the users sharing the space to achieve the end design. To ensure that the different users were considered four sub plans and strategies have been developed: Road Network Plan, Transit Strategy, Pedestrian and Bike Master Plan and the Transportation Demand Management Strategy

Road Safety

Transportation Demand Management (TDM)
is the use of policies, programs, services and products to influence whether, why, when, where and how people travel.

    TDM measures motivate people to:

  • shift modes
  • walk, cycle
  • take transit
  • carpool instead of driving
  • make fewer trips
  • telework, shop online or use the telephone
  • drive more efficiently, shop locally, do several things on each trip, and avoid peak
    traffic periods and congested routes

By managing the demand for travel, City of Vernon can reduce the need for costly new or widened roads (approximate cost is $1 million/kilometer), diminish the social costs of car use, and increase the return on their investments in transit, walking, cycling and carpooling facilities.

The keys to the success of TDM are collaboration and communicating with internal and external partnerships within the City of Vernon departments and with businesses, corporations, non-profit organizations, schools and community.
