THE POTENTIAL FOR MODAL SHIFT: CONTESTABLE TRUCK TRAFFIC

This paper provides an overview of a modal shift analysis done by Transport Canada in 1998 in support of the deliberations of the Transportation Climate Change Table. Previous work on modal shift has tended to focus either on specific shipments using detailed data, or on a larger scale, using aggregated publicly available data. The objective of this work was to develop a tool to assess the potential for modal shift from truck to rail, producing a complete picture of national and transborder transportation, and at a level of detail made possible by carrier data available.
