Strategies for Sustainable Transportation Planning

In 2004, TAC’s Sustainable Transportation Standing Committee initiated a project to encourage sustainable transportation planning in Canada. Workshops were held at TAC Annual Conferences in 2004 and 2005, and in 2005 the federal government funded a research project that examined the state of practice and future directions for sustainable transportation planning in Canadian urban areas. This research was followed by a series of workshops across Canada to gather insights into the state of transportation planning in Canada, and to solicit feedback on a set of preliminary options for incorporating sustainable transportation principles into long-range urban transportation plans. Based on these efforts, this briefing presents a set of principles and related strategies for sustainable transportation planning. This briefing is not a comprehensive guideline, but rather offers a checklist for agencies as they seek to create transportation plans that effectively contribute to more sustainable transportation. It can also help practitioners, elected officials and members of the public advance the state of debate on more cost-effective, environmentally conscious and socially responsible transportation solutions.
