Research and Reports

Learn how UBC is progressing towards its transportation goals

Transportation Planning engages in many transportation-related research projects, which are published as they reach their final stages. Other relevant reports and projects may also be posted here from time to time.

Produced yearly, Transportation Status Reports summarize transportation patterns and statistics and compare them to our baseline year of 1997.

Transportation Planning conducts and commissions background reports on various transportation issues on and to campus. Examples include parking, carpooling, development guidelines, and cycling infrastructure. This research helps us develop policies and deliver programs which are appropriate and effective to our strategic initiatives.

Transportation Planning acts as a repository for relevant student research on topics related to transportation at UBC.

Transportation Planning also conducts surveys and focus groups at UBC Vancouver and UBC Okanagan to gain a better understanding of transportation needs, satisfaction with services, and the travel habits of community members. Every two years a transportation survey is conducted.
