This briefing note provides highlights from a review of Transportation Tomorrow Survey data from 2011 to provide a glimpse at how Durham Region travels. It shows some interesting tidbits, such as the trend to an increasing number of trips during the morning peak period that are not work- or school-related. The TMP will need to consider these trends when developing network alternatives and policy directions.
This briefing note provides a summary of what the study team heard during the first round of Public Information Centres held in November 2014. What were the priorities of those who attended? What key themes emerged? Read the note and find out.
The third briefing note reviews the results of a public opinion survey that was completed in late October 2014. The random survey asked Durham Region residents what their top issue was for transportation and their attitude to potential solutions.
