Green Action Centre and Bike Winnipeg invite you to join us for a local viewing of the APBP webinar: New Tools for Estimating Walking and Bicycling Demand. The webinar viewing takes place in the EcoCentre boardroom (3rd floor, 303 Portage Ave) and will be followed by group discussion of local applications. Note that this will be a recorded webinar, so while we will have an opportunity to discuss the webinar amongst ourselves, we will not have an opportunity to ask questions of the presenters.
NCHRP project 08-78 developed new methods for estimating bicycle and pedestrian demand for planning and project development. The project’s final report is NCHRP 770, a guidebook that presents an array of methods for a variety of planning applications, with context and instruction on their selection and use. This webinar will focus on a new tool outlined in NCHRP 7-70 that enables practitioners to estimate demand from the interaction of land use and transportation.
The new multimodal accessibility tool allows planners to include all modes of travel in an analysis that also examines changes in the pattern of land use or the travel network to determine which strategy, or combination of strategies, provides the greatest return. This session will review the limitations of current models for estimating demand, describe the research behind the development of the new tool, and give examples of how the model is being used at regional, corridor, and neighborhood levels.
