Carvolth Park & Ride and Transit Exchange is a new, convenient public transit hub in Langley. This transit improvement project was funded under a partnership between the Province of British Columbia, the Government of Canada, and TransLink. As the eastern hub of the new Highway 1 RapidBus service, the expanded park & ride facility features an expanded park & ride lot with 670 stalls, a state-of-practice bus exchange, and fast and direct connections to Highway 1 HOV lanes. Commissioned in December 2012,  the RapidBus became the first reliable transit service over Port Mann Bridge in 20 years with less than 25 minutes bus travel time from Langley to Lougheed Station. In addition, the RapidBus and the park & ride will also help to significantly reduce greenhouse gases to achieve environmental benefits. This presentation will discuss the over planning, design, and implementation process of this project.

Simon Li, P.Eng. PTOE, is a Senior Transportation Engineer with Coast Mountain Bus Company. He has over 25 years of experience in a wide range of transportation projects including road infrastructure planning, design, construction, and operations. Simon has been involved with the Port Mann Highway 1 RapidBus project since its inception in 2005. Since then, he has been heavily involved with the design, construction, commissioning, and post-implementation improvements. Simon will share the overall implementation process of this project.

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.
