iMove® - Metro Vancouver's New Integrated, Multi-Modal Web Portal for Traveller Information

The paper describes the iMove® project, a “one-stop” transportation portal designed to provide multi-modal, multi-jurisdiction, real-time and static traveler information via the World Wide Web. The iMove website enables transportation consumers in Metro Vancouver to quickly access information on a host of transportation issues, including transit and cycling routes, construction and event information, current incidents, airline arrivals and departures, border crossing wait times, ferry sailing time and loadings, all from a single source. Visitors to the site have access to over 125 webcams to access current road conditions on major regional corridors and at key locations. The authors discuss the use of ITS Corporation’s structure to bring together the efforts of many existing regional agencies in the Vancouver area to create a unified multi-modal traveler information service which bundles information to cater for the needs of specific user groups. The design of the iMove® system is in conformance with the Canadian ITS Architecture and NTCIP and ITE ITS data and interface standards. The authors conclude that the iMove® service allows road users to avoid incidents and municipal construction zones, minimizing congestion to reduce accident potential thereby improving overall road safety.
