Transportation Demand Management Encyclopedia

The Victoria Transport Policy Institute has updated it's online Transportation Demand Management Encyclopedia.

Among the new entries are "Roadway Connectivity", which refers to the density of connections in a road or path network, and "Strong Commercial Centers", which are defined as: "Vibrant downtowns, business districts, urban villages and other walkable, mixed-use activity centers can provide a variety of economic, social and environmental benefits. They increase accessibility, increase travel options and reduce per capita vehicle travel. They tend to increase productivity and regional economic development."
