Purpose• Show how the Regional Transportation and Complete Mobility Program is moving from the planning stages to implementation stages• How the program is bringing value at the local level-working collaboratively together
Regional Transit Why?: CMP• Accommodate pop growth up to 3 million by 2070• CMP includes cost-effective infrastructure to help achieve the proposed settlement pattern• Intensification as a tool-transit supportive• “Moving Forward Strategic Plan” – Implementation of regional transit objectives
Regional Transit ObjectivesGenerating public awareness
Regional Transit ObjectivesIdentifiable brandPromoting Quality of life
Regional Transit ObjectivesTransit supportive land use-TOD
Transportation and Complete Mobility Work Plan Priorities• Regional Marketing and Branding• Regional Transit Governance• Regional Fare Integration• Building Implementation Capacity• Transit Oriented Tool Kit Development• Private/public Contract Framework
Regional Branding and Marketing3 current brands
Partnering for Local Pilots• Marketing and Branding RFP • Delivery of a marketing template • 2 campaigns promoting transit culture and awareness• Bow Valley Regional Transit System • Canmore to Banff new service• Pilots will help design templates
Regional Transit GovernancePlanning to implementation stages requirescritical strategic decisionsHow will they be made? By whom?What transit governance model is best?
Regional Transit GovernanceSteering Committee approved 4 motionsdirecting CRP:1. Explore transit governance models2. Explore CRP owning regional transit assets and operating the service3. Leading a regional study on inter-municipal connectivity4. Development a regional feasibility framework• 4 motions captured under the first 2 scenarios
Regional Fare Integration• Longer term strategy: to develop a CRP regional fare structure• Defining a seamless trip from a customer’s perspective• Tapping into future smart card technology• Local pilot projects; regional application- Airdrie/Calgary Transit
Building Implementation Capacity and Support• CRP and municipalities evolving together as transit implementation takes place• Learning together- one offs not efficient
Pilot Projects Building Support and Providing Value Together• Airdrie: – Transit Review of their local services- – Fare integration pilot• Bow Valley Regional Transit System: – Marketing pilot for new Canmore to Banff service• Black Diamond/Turner Valley: – Sub regional feasibility study• Okotoks: – awaiting the outcome of the regional transit governance project• Cochrane: – Provided transit work shop support – Detailed transit strategy• Chestermere: – CRP is leading a public engagement to gauge community interest and acceptance
Transit Oriented DevelopmentGenerally defined as a compact, walkable, typically mixed-usedevelopment near a rail stop, bus station, transit terminal or othertransit facility
Private/Public Contract Framework• Development of a consistent contractual framework for private/public service delivery model applicable regionally• Example: Monitoring on-time performance
Tying it Altogether• Planning to implementation presents real challenges• CRP will continue to evolve and innovate and be flexible• CRP has a vested interest in success• Local implementation success is the key for region wide success• Using pilot projects to achieve regional goals
