EMME Model as Cooperative Planning Tool and the National Capital Commission

EMME Users’ Conference 2008

Ottawa-Gatineau


NCC Mandate and Role Capital Commission

"Prepare plans for and assist in the development, conservation and improvement of the National Capital Region in order that the nature and character of the seat of the Government of Canada may be in accordance with its national significance."

NCC is responsible for review, advice and approval of all proposals for modification, construction, additions, demolitions, public activities or other works on federal lands.

Transportation is key component considering planning mandate and strategic lands.

TRANS Capital Commission

Joint NCR Transportation Systems Planning Group


Intergovernmental committee on transportation systems planning formed in 1970s, led by Ottawa with participation of Gatineau, OC Transpo, STO, MTO, MTQ, NCC

Cooperation in areas of common interest -

  • Surveys and Data collection

  • Modelling, forecasting

  • Trend analysis

  • Special Studies

TRANS


NCC Interests in TRANS and Modelling planning formed in 1970s, led by Ottawa with participation of Gatineau, OC Transpo, STO, MTO, MTQ, NCC

  • Areas of NCC interest focus on administration of National Capital Act (1958) including Capital planning, federal land use review, funding of transport data collection, forecasting, analysis, studies.

  • Annual financial contribution by NCC since the early 1980s and presently at $15,000 to help cover administrative costs.

  • Annual contributions allow partners free access to modeling results.

  • Financial and technical commitments by NCC towards household mobility origin-destination surveys, cordon surveys, interprovincial goods transport surveys, model redevelopment and enhancement, trends analysis, special transportation studies.

  • EMME model also helpful for federal planning initiatives including –

    • Environmental Assessment for Future Interprovincial Crossings in the NCR,

    • Interprovincial Rapid Transit Integration Strategic Planning Study,

    • LeBreton Flats,

    • Plan for Canada's Capital.


Model as Planning and Policy Tool planning formed in 1970s, led by Ottawa with participation of Gatineau, OC Transpo, STO, MTO, MTQ, NCC

Key NCC initiatives presently are the Greenbelt Master Plan Review, Capital Urban Sector Master Plan, and Plan for Canada’s Capital update.

Data resulting from modelling represents a treasure chest of information for planners and policy makers.

NCC and its partners are influenced by modelling to consider policies aimed at factors like congestion, emissions and land use with policies like commute trip reduction programs, HOV lanes, road pricing, multimodal facilities and transit oriented development all aimed at modifying behaviour.

Capturing behaviour by modelling process is important to show real impacts of transportation policy and to facilitate consideration of future planning and policy options.


Concluding Remarks planning formed in 1970s, led by Ottawa with participation of Gatineau, OC Transpo, STO, MTO, MTQ, NCC

  • Improving the transportation model is a continual process.

  • Data, data and more data.

  • Predicting behaviour.

  • Collaboration among partners is essential for continued success in integrated approach to transport planning and tracking distinct agendas and interests – demonstrates unique collaborative planning.

  • Ongoing NCC financial contributions to TRANS modelling activities consistent with federal commitment to urban capacity building and investment in the future of our Capital Region.

  • State-of-the-art model will continue to provide useful input to future transport planning activités in the NCR, including strategic regional and interprovincial freight transport planning, demand management and trip reduction programmes, and sustainable transport strategies.

  • Demonstration of successful and unique cooperative planning among municipal, provincial and federal governments.
