As part of the update of the 2008 Transportation Plan the original maps showing future sidewalk, bike lanes, multi-use paths and trails have been updated. Public input was taken on the new map at several events and at eight community workshops. The final Pedestrian and Bike Master Plan is now being presented to Council on September 8, 2014 requesting they endorse its inclusion in the updated transportation plan.

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
  • elework, 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.
