Slide1

Integrating TDM into Transit (and cycling and traffic) planning

Peter.Topaloivc@Hamilton.caCity of Hamilton – Transportation

Sustainable Mobility Summit – October 27, 2013

Slide2

How the Transportation Demand Management Professional views the purpose of TDM

Schools, Workplaces

&Neighborhoods

Improve health, reduce obesityImprove Air QualityPlace Making

Complete Streets, TDM and Land UseReduce SOV use

Network & SystemsApproach - Resiliency

Constrained road space & need for other modes & efficiency

Reduce infrastructure costs

Increase ridership

Slide3

How the Transportation Demand Management Professional views TDM

In other words …

Slide4

How the stereotypical Transit Planner classically views TDM

Competes with the same limited pools of funding and does not contribute to improving infrastructure

It’s a series of soft solutions that do not have tangible, short term results

May increase ridership, but too much ridership can necessitate more infrastructure

Transit competes with other modes and therefore multi-modal strategies are not effective for transit

Slide5

How the stereotypical Transit Planner classically views TDM

In other words …

Transit is the Bread!

Slide6

Bridging the GapHow do TDM professional change the paradigm

Getting from this

To this

Slide7

Bridging the Gap – Hamilton Experience

Getting Ready for Rapid Transit – A supportive Strategy

TDM becomes part of a new integrated transportation strategy in 2012

Slide9

Bridging the Gap – Hamilton Experience

Getting Ready for Rapid Transit – A supportive Strategy

Just because a great plan exists does not mean things just come together!

The success of the plan

requires:

Understanding of Social Networks

TDM Value

Proposition and Business

Case

Finding Synergies in a variety of projects

Leverage funding for multi-modal infrastructure

Re-branding TDM in “transit-speak”: ridership, service levels, headway

A little bit of hope and luck!!

Slide10

Bridging the Gap – Hamilton Experience

Getting Ready for Rapid Transit – A supportive Strategy

To This:

Reduce

single occupant vehicle use by 20%Daily transit trips from 5% to 12%Daily walking and cycling trips from 6% to 15%Annual transit rides per capita from 40 to 80Reducing the 50% of trips less than 5km that are made by automobile 75% of the time

But how do we get from this:

Slide11

TDM Integration Strategies

Strategy 1: Demonstrate Value through Service ProvisionONE point of contact for a business or developer on transportation issues

Transit route planning

Transit schedule timing to shift times

Employer shuttle or municipality provided on-demand transit

Transit Promotions at workplaces

Design of transit drop off and terminal facilities

Relocation Studies

Subsidised transit pass program

Slide12

TDM Integration Strategies

Strategy 1: Demonstrate Value through Service Provision

Transit is closer than you think (10 passes at start to 50+ passes sold per month)

Origin-Destination Studies to plan transit stops & schedules

Slide13

TDM Integration Strategies

Strategy 2: End of Trip Facilities to deal with first/last mileTransit infrastructure funding was allocated for bike share transit services to build or relieve ridership demand (depending on area)

B-Line

A-Line

Slide14

TDM Integration Strategies

Strategy 3: Multi-modal Phone App with next bus timesRather than have a next bus app – funds were leveraged for an app that includes an interactive cycling map and multi-modal routing

Slide15

TDM Integration Strategies

Strategy 4: Position implementation plans with transit focus

Bike Parking Plan uses transit funding to ensure there is adequate short term parking at transit stops

Long term bike parking is being built at major hubs and stations

Gap analysis of all end of trip facilities

Slide16

TDM Integration Strategies

Strategy 5: Individualized MarketingPiloted an individualized marketing program with 9% decrease in SOV useUsed to demonstrate how IM can promote transit useWith the introduction of Rapid Ready routes - this can increase ridership

Slide17

TDM Integration Strategies

Strategy 6: TDM for Construction MitigationPromote non-SOV trips during road constructionCreate special provisions for transit to ensure timely travel around construction650 requests for individualized travel information processed Vital research for mitigating construction of Rapid TransitTraffic Department wants to replicate this for other projects

Social Network Perspective:

TDM as a service connecting with other internal “customers” who can benefit

Slide18

TDM Integration Strategies

Strategy 7: Emphasise transit components in Complete Streets and Cycling Projects

Act as a “Bridger”

between

transit and engineering in road construction projects to improve multi-modal connectivity

Ensure transit lanes and stops are key considerations in road diets

Slide19

TDM Integration Strategies

Strategy 8: Segregated cycling and transit lanes are behaviour change projects, not road projects!

+

City Staff

Behaviour Change & Perception

+

Complete Streets Momentum

Project is approved as a complete street (not a cycling lane!)

Represents a paradigm shift

Slide20

TDM Integration Strategies

Strategy 9: Integrate TDM and Land Use considerations with transit route, stop and station considerations

THREE THEMES – integrate land use and transit planning

TOD & TDM Guidelines

Slide21

TDM Integration Strategies

Strategy 9: Integrate TDM and Land Use considerations with transit route and parking planning

Growth in nodes

&

corridors served by

transit

Transit supportive

densities in newly developing areas

Built forms and design

to support

transit and active

transportation

This is OBVIOUS right?

Slide22

TDM Integration Strategies

Strategy 9: Integrate TDM and Land Use considerations with transit route, stop and station considerations

Half Empty: Abundant Parking (65% utilization)

Half full: TOD development potential

Slide23

TDM Integration Strategies

Strategy 9: Integrate TDM and Land Use considerations with transit route, stop and station considerations

Integrated transit & corridor planning

Design

charrettes

and community engagement

Slide24

Wrap Up

TDM and Transit go together like bread and butterButter makes bread more appealing, acts as an incentive to eat bread and overall, makes breakfast more efficient!
