Come learn about transportation planning and traffic modelling!
Transportation planning involves addressing existing transportation problems while forecasting and addressing issues likely to occur in the future. Traffic modelling is a powerful tool to assess the impact of transportation infrastructure as planned and evaluate how the system is likely to perform in the future.
Jeremy Finkleman (MCIP, RPP) is a transportation planner and new mobility specialist with a strong background in transportation business cases, traffic operational analysis, traffic modelling, and multi-modal integrated planning studies. Over the past 3 years, he has spearheaded a process to develop 21st century tools to streamline transportation network assessments and planning, working in tandem with a global GPS firm to develop in-vehicle methods of operationalizing big data offerings to assess roadway delays, speeds, and traffic volumes.
Niraj Sunuwar (P.Eng.) is a transportation engineer with experience in transportation planning and modelling, traffic operational and safety analysis. Over the past 6 years, he has supported a variety of transportation projects in Alberta and BC as traffic analyst and modeler including Intersection and Highway Improvements, Network Modelling, and Transportation Impact Assessments. Niraj is also the current vice president of Greater Vancouver chapter of Canadian Institute of Transportation Engineers (CITE).
