Over the last decade, the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR) has become the subject of much discussion. Up until the late 1970s, the South of Fraser sub-region lost large areas of farmland to industrial parks and urban development. In the last 1980s, the sub-region lost farmland to golf courses. Since 2000, the ALR has been steadily losing land to transportation infrastructure. The largest single exclusion of land from the ALR was for construction of the South Fraser Perimeter Road. The major contributor to loss of farmable land in the ALR is the provincial government, responsible for over ¾ of all changes in the South of Fraser over the last decade alone. The purpose of the ALR is to provide agricultural land for farm use, but is under extreme pressure for transportation project. The provincial government needs to strike a balance between transportation infrastructure and the ALR, or the farmland in the South of Fraser will continue to be lost. - July 2010  987k v. 2 Aug 10, 2010, 7:13 AM Nathan Pachal

Translink initiated a system-monitoring program (SMP) of the entire SkyTrain system to assess station usage and overall ridership. The goal of the SMP was to collect, analyze and report station usage. Findings of the SMP will be used as base data for a number of current and future planning processes. In addition, monitoring will be done to establish a system performance baseline from which future performance reviews can be based upon for performance trend analysis.

Today, Calgary’s LRT has the highest ridership (both in total and on a per capita basis) of any North American system. This success has been achieved with a modest level of investment in comparison to costs of other recent LRT systems. Capital costs have been minimized and the effectiveness of the LRT mode has been optimized. This paper explains how Calgary has realized these achievements and become a leader in the transit industry. April 19, 2006.  1371k v. 10 Apr 8, 2008, 2:00 PM Nathan Pachal

Reallocating roadspace from general traffic, to improve conditions for pedestrians or cyclists or buses or on-street light rail or other high-occupancy vehicles, is often predicted to cause major traffic problems on neighbouring streets. This paper reports on two phases of research, resulting in the examination of over 70 case studies of roadspace reallocation from eleven countries, and the collation of opinions from over 200 transport professionals worldwide. M25 motorway had not produced consistently free-flowing traffic conditions around London (despite having been built with excessive spare capacity according to the traffic conditions before its construction). However, while it was officially recognised that building roads could induce additional traffic, the opposite proposition, namely that reducing roadspace could reduce traffic, was not.

This bulletin explores the application of European modern tram technology as an alternative to highway expansion. Specifically, it examines the relative advantage of spending public funds in excess of 3 billion dollars for bridge and highway construction to provide freeway access to Vancouver versus spending the same amount for an easily accessible light rail system to serve the entire South of Fraser region.  7697k v. 2 Jun 8, 2009, 7:26 AM Nathan Pachal

The Cost of Urban Congestion in Canada study developed congestion indicators for the nine largest urban areas in Canada. The research required the development of common means to measure congestion and extract the requisite data for the indicators from each urban area’s travel demand forecasting models. Although the models all produce the same outputs (i.e. simulations of vehicle trips), there were structural and methodological differences among them. Some of the differences are obvious - such as the definition of expressways and arterials – while others are subtle, such as the methods used to calibrate the urban models. Consequently, the differences are significant enough not to allow a simple comparison of congestion across all nine urban areas. However, such congestion indicators, if collected over time, could be particularly useful in tracking trends. March 22, 2006.  436k v. 2 Apr 8, 2008, 4:00 PM Nathan Pachal

This study exposes one potential option to what would be a very large investment in subway technology. Alternative transit strategies have their costs and benefits. This study demonstrates that the money needed for one 12 km subway line would be more than enough to rebuild and substantially expand the region’s entire historic streetcar system. - UBC Professor Patrick M.

Transportation Modes: An Overview. Transport modes are the means by which people and freight are carried. They fall into one of three basic types, depending on over what surface they travel – land (road, rail and pipelines), water (shipping), and air. Each mode is characterized by a set of technical, operational and commercial characteristics.   221k v. 2 Apr 8, 2008, 3:57 PM Nathan Pachal

Downtown Langley has significant redevelopment potential. Redevelopment interest in the Downtown area and adjoining recent residential development are indicators that a well-directed plan that coordinates public and private infrastructure, public realm, and additional community services is needed. At the same time, the goal to retain the sense of “special place” is paramount. The market and land economics analysis indicates demand for low profile compact mixed use development, while mid to high rise development could have medium to long term potential outside the Core Area. This Plan could accelerate even the 10 year redevelopment time table as it represents a coordinated approach to community amenities and services. The challenge will be managing this transformation so that existing uses are supported while new development is encouraged that fits with the adjoining context.

When you shop, you may visit a mall, or go to your town’s main street. At the mall, you probably cruise past rows and rows of empty parking, the spaces filled only one day a year. Maybe you head downtown, but can only find vacant storefronts. And where things are bustling, you can’t find convenient parking near the stores you want to visit. All three of these scenarios represent a “parking problem” that has a negative impact on other community goals. At the mall, overbuilt parking consumes land and wastes money. Downtown, storefronts may sit empty because new businesses that would like to move in can’t meet high parking requirements – and too little parking makes good businesses less viable.  3515k v. 2 Feb 20, 2009, 9:24 AM Nathan Pachal

Transit Oriented Development (TOD) is a walkable, mixed use form of development focused around a transit station. Concentrating higher density development near the station makes transit convenient and encourages ridership. This Best Practices Handbook introduces the key planning principles behind successful TOD. It summarizes some of the current practices for designing and implementing transit oriented development. January 2004.  1065k v. 2 Apr 17, 2008, 8:05 PM Nathan Pachal

At the westernmost crossing between Canada and the US stands the Peace Arch monument. The motto “Children of a Common Mother” is written there in two foot high bronze letters, a motto that emphasizes the similar genesis for each country. Looking across the waters of the Georgia Straight from here you can see San Juan Island, site of the short lived “Pig War”, the last armed conflict between Canada (or British North America as it was then known) and the United States. Since that time peace has reigned, but differences persist. In the past fifty years a new and important difference has emerged, the difference between the US metropolitan areas and their Canadian counterparts. What explains these differences, and what can we learn from them? This paper provides an introduction to the question, sketched out in exceedingly broad strokes, for the sake of seeding discussion and provoking debate.
