THE SASKATCHEWAN TRANSPORTATION MODEL AND ITS USE IN REGIONAL TRANSPORTATION PLANNING

The Saskatchewan Transportation Model (STM) was developed in 1992 as a planning tool to help the Saskatchewan Department of Highways and Transportation (DHT) and the Regional Transportation Planning Councils (RTPCs) prepare for grain transportation rationalization. Changing grain transportation is the driving force behind the recent formation of the RTPCs. The emerging regional nature of grain movement has created an even greater role for RTPCs. Changes which occur outside an RM (rural municipality) boundary can have significant social and economic consequences within that municipality. The paper examines the use of the STM in regional transportation planning.
