The 2008 – 2031 Transportation Plan is in the process of being updated. The new document will be titled the Master Transportation Plan. It will be a supplementary document to the Official Community Plan and provide detailed plans for road, pedestrian, cycling and transit network improvements for the next 25 years.

The principles and goals of the 2008 – 2031 Transportation Plan are still valid, though the timelines are being extended due to slowed growth. The target of increasing the number of trips made by walking, cycling, transit or carpooling, will remain the focus of the Master Transportation Plan. This will keep the whole transportation network osperating satisfactorily and safely for everyone with acceptable levels of congestion in a cost-effective manner.

Until this document is fully approved please refer to the 2008 – 2031 Transportation Plan and the current information on other pages of this website.

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.
