This study examines the feasibility of developing a Sustainable Transportation Plan that aims to reduce single-occupant vehicle (SOV) trips to and from Simon Fraser University's (SFU) Burnaby Mountain Campus by a minimum of 20%.
The STP focuses on improving the efficiency of the transportation and land use system by influencing how people travel (i.e. modal choice), where they travel (i.e. how far they travel to reach their desired destination), and when they travel (i.e. peak versus off-peak). To develop sustainable transportation and land use policies and a Sustainable Transportation Plan for SFU, a 'sustainability-planning' framework was developed. This framework identified appropriate categories, goals, objectives, indicators, and targets for this study's overall objective of reducing SOV travel by 20%. It thus acts as the foundation and template for policy formation. Furthermore, an examination of transportation demand management (TDM) measures and sustainable transportation and land use indicators (Indicators Menu)--identified through an extensive literature review--was completed and integrated into the development of the Sustainable Transportation and Land Use Planning Framework.
