Event description

Description

Join us at the Transportation Forum, a full day of learning and sharing hosted by the City of New Westminster and sponsored by TransLink. This forum is hosted at Anvil Centre, which is right across the street from New Westminster SkyTrain Station! Leave your car at home and take transit!

The IW19 iteration of the transportation forum comes with a focus on inclusivity. The workshops and speakers will focus on planning transportation for all ages and abilities, and for all modes. The hope is that participants will come away better equipped to have a regional conversation. This year, there will also be a display/information area in the atrium where regional municipalities, educational institutions, or organizations can display their challenges, learnings and what they are working on.

Agenda:

9:00am to 9:30am - Registration and Networking

9:30am to 9:45am - Opening Remarks from City of New Westminster Mayor Jonathan Cote and TransLink Director of Systems Planning, Sarah Ross

9:45am to 11:30am - Session 1: Discovery Panel: How Accessible Is Accessible?

This session will focus on uncovering the challenges with transportation planning for accessibility is not a check box to be ticked, but rather has very real implications for residents of all ages and abilities and that by planning for people with disabilities, we actually plan for everyone. The topic will touch on: admitting when we didn’t get it right, and how to learn from that, planning for meaningful changes, and how do we ensure we are actually planning changes that are desired by residents.

Moderated by: Stan Leyenhorst, UADI
