Hi,

I want to order a paper that evaluates the proposed transportation intervention. Find the details below.

Structure:

The report can be structured similar to a professional memo or as a research paper. It must include an executive summary, a description of the wider context related to the proposal, the methodology and data analysis conducted and a discussion of the impacts of the proposal. Tables, graphs, charts, maps and visual presentations of data are encouraged. The report should be clear and coherently organized, using correct spelling and grammar.

The report should answer the following questions:

  1. What is the problem your proposal seeks to address?
  2. What larger transportation, land use or other goals does your proposal support?
  3. Has the proposal been tried before in the GTHA? If not, why hasn’t it been tried before? What are potential barriers to implementing the proposal?
  4. What methodology was used to estimate and evaluate the impacts of the proposal?
  5. What are the expected impacts of the proposal (costs and benefits)?
  6. Based on the evaluation of the proposal’s impacts, what recommendations would you provide to policy makers interested in your proposal?

Evaluation of Impacts:

Should include analysis on the estimated impacts of a proposal. These estimates should be evidence-based, derived from case studies from other jurisdictions, supporting data from surveys or databases, and/or forecasted ridership or travel patterns using quantitative techniques introduced in the course. Impacts must include:

  • Travel Impacts: forecasted changes in the number of auto vehicle kilometres travelled; transit ridership; walking; cycling; other modes; changes in safety (accidents), travel time savings; congestion (road, transit, etc.); other.
  • Environmental Impacts: estimated changes in transportation emissions; noise or vibrations related to transportation; natural landscapes (due to water runoff, erosion, wildlife, etc.); other.
  • Social Impacts: estimated changes in the quality of life of a community; the cost of travel (affordability); access to major destinations, services, jobs, recreation; public health impacts; housing affordability; other.
  • Economic Impacts: estimated changes to the region’s economy; productivity; goods movement; property values; innovation; business costs; other.
  • Financial Impacts: estimated costs associated with implementing (constructing, administering or enforcing) and maintaining the proposal.

Cost-Benefit Analysis ­

Students are encouraged to develop a comparison of the estimated economic value of the benefits of a transportation proposal to its costs. This can be summarized as a ratio of benefits to costs and should use standard economic values and costs provided in the class or found in other credible research and sourced appropriately.
