Event description

Description

Dale Bracewell is the Manager of Transportation Planning for the City of Vancouver (Canada). Dale and his team lead the citywide and community planning implementation of Transportation 2040, the city’s long range transportation plan for all modes, including funding strategies and coordination with regional and provincial transportation plans and policies. Dale previously led the City’s Active Transportation team responsible for the city’s pedestrian, bicycle, and greenways networks as well as Vancouver’s transportation planning and operations for the 2010 Olympic Winter Games, one of the largest staged events in the world.

Vancouver’s Blueprint for Sustainable Transportation Transportation 2040 is a high-level vision for all modes of transportation with specific mobility and safety goals. Guided by implementation principles, the City achieved its interim target of 50% of all daily trips by sustainable modes and is on track to achieve further growth and two-thirds of all daily trips by walking, cycling and transit in 2040.

By completing a protected bike lane network and implementing an Active Transportation Promotion & Enabling Plan, daily cycling trips in Vancouver have increased over 50% from 2013 to 2016. With its own All Ages & Abilities Design Guidelines and by embracing a variety of public engagement strategies, cycling has increasingly become a mode for all in Vancouver.

The event is free for PBT members and a gold coin donation on the night for non-members.
