Vancouver is committed to get 100 per cent of its energy from renewable sources by 2050. As the City prepares beyond the Transportation 2040 Plan, it is strategically transitioning to be ready for the full realm of automated, connected, electric, shared vehicles (ACES) while embracing road space reallocation to sustainable transportation modes, more rapid transit and a high speed rail to Seattle. As a Smart City Challenge finalist within Canada, the City is preparing for the future of mobility through innovation and partnerships as it continues its journey to move more people by walking, cycling and transit while eliminating fatalities and serious injuries.
Speaker: 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 the Transportation 2040 Plan, the City’s long range transportation plan for all modes, including funding strategies and coordination with regional and provincial transportation plans and policies. With over 18 years of transportation planning and design experience, Dale is a professional engineer who has worked for both municipal and provincial governments as well as the private sector.
