Please join us for the inaugural lecture of Dalhousie University Transportation Collaboratory’s (DalTRAC) Distinguished Lecture Series. Dr. Eric Miller will share Toronto’s experience in university-government partnerships with respect to transportation data, analysis and modelling. The presentation will also include an overview of integrated urban modelling research that has been supported by this collaborative R&D environment.
My name is Caroline King. I am a Masters of Planning Studies student here at Dalhousie University. I am also facilitator for the Ecology Action Centre’s Tiny Travel Planning program, Transportation Officer for Dalhousie’s Office of Sustainability, Student Researcher at DalTRAC, and Director of Membership for the Halifax Cycling Coalition.
I am currently working on creating a daycare travel planning program to investigate travel patterns and determine transportation barriers for parents with children between the ages of 18 months and 5 years. I thought I would share the latest poster for the proposal of this research. If you have any comments or feedback on my project, I would love to hear it.

Two students working for DalTRAC, Mateja and Kelsey, will be going to the Municipality of the District of Chester on April 4th to hold a community engagement session about ‘Share the Road’. The workshop will be divided into two parts. The first part will focus on how road safety can be improved in the local community. The second part will focus on generating ideas for a ‘Share the Road’ awareness campaign for the local community. Participants will be asked to discuss their opinions regarding which media and/or slogans will be effective in spreading the campaign message to the community. DalTRAC is excited about this opportunity to engage the community and gain valuable insights to help in the development of an effective ‘Share the Road’ campaign for the Province of Nova Scotia.
