11.12.2014 :: QUAD 2015 Update - Investing in our Transportation Evolution
The QUAD Conference is an annual transportation conference held in the Pacific Northwest that provides a forum for transportation professionals to network, exchange ideas, discuss best practices, share research and showcase recent projects. The general focus is on land-based transportation, such as walking, cycling, transit, goods movement and vehicles. A wide variety of topics are covered, including planning, analysis, design, construction, maintenance, operations, safety, technology and financing, among others.

The theme for the 2015 QUAD Conference is "Investing in our Transportation Evolution". Many trends are reshaping the transportation industry‘s landscape, such as social media, autonomous vehicles, and the shift towards active transportation. Discover the innovative ways that transportation professionals are leading this evolution, and how the public and private sectors are investing in this change. 

This year, the QUAD Conference is pleased to welcome Pro Walk Pro Bike Pro Place as our partners. The Pro Walk Pro Bike Pro Place Conference will be held in Vancouver in 2016 with the theme of “Better Health through Active Transportation.” To provide a hint of what is to come in 2016, a few sessions, tours and workshops will be added to the QUAD Conference to highlight the link between transportation and health.

Gary Vlieg is part of the CTS Engineering team as a Senior Traffic Engineer . He is a registered Professional Engineer (P.Eng.) in British Columbia and Alberta with over 25 years of experience in transportation planning, traffic engineering and project management throughout Western Canada and New Zealand. His responsibilities include leading technical assignments, presenting findings to municipal councils, mentoring staff and ensuring a high standard of quality on CTS projects. Gary has worked in both the public and private sector and brings a keen awareness of the needs of both to the table. Brief description of the presentation: Traffic signals can be found in every community in the Lower Mainland but often engineering departments do not have the resources to evaluate signal operations on an on-going basis. The presentation will demonstrate in concrete terms the benefits – operating, societal and environmental – that staff can use to justify an on-going program to evaluate signal operations.
