our vision

The Toronto and Region Conservation Authority proposed to re-purpose the Bolton Camp property from its previous use as an overnight summer camp for youth and families to an adventure and leadership development center.

The proposed programming included sport and fitness activities, community art and culture programs, outdoor education and training, leadership development, and social entrepreneurship opportunities.

Acting as a sub-consultant to LGA Architectural Partners, our traffic study included consideration for the proposed site use, traffic flow, site entrance, requirements, cost, and scheduling. To accommodate future programming and accessibility on-site, we proposed improvements to site access/ egress (i.e. the relocation of the site entrance and widening of the road to accommodate traffic on site, especially during events).

For internal roads and parking areas (approximately 300-400 parking spaces in two lots) we prepared conceptual plans, drawings, as well as outlined specifications. Input was also provided for the site access, internal roadways/ bridges, parking areas, reviewing traffic flow, grading, and incorporating Low Impact Development practices.

Following a comprehensive review of development potential in the Township of Adjala-Tosorontio, a new plan was required for managing growth. An amendment to the Adjala Tosorontio Official Plan and support of a Secondary Plan to expand Everett Settlement Area Boundary aimed to accommodate a maximum of 9,444 residents plus support commercial development.

Recent considerations related to Municipal growth project the population of Everett would increase (over the next 30 years and beyond) to about 9,444 from the existing 1,650(2011 Census). To ensure the resulting community achieves the desired vision of the Township, County, and Province, a coordinated approach to development was needed.

Trans-Plan used a combination of in-person meetings with Town and County staff and real-world data collection including a detailed field survey of land use, roadway geometrics, and 13 intersection traffic counts to produce a report based on expert traffic analysis. This resulted in recommendations for the future road network layout and intersection improvements which allow for strategic and coordinated development.


The new TTC Bus Garage at the northwest quadrant of Kennedy Road and McNicoll Avenue in Scarborough provides storage, fueling and cleaning for 250 busses and is home to traffic offices for dispatching operators, training rooms, and an employee parking lot.

We provided a peer review and analysis of the Environmental Project Report for the TTC McNicoll Bus Garage, specifically on traffic impacts concerning the Mon Sheong Foundation. Our peer review report expressed traffic concerns and mitigation measures to submit to the Ministry of the Environment and other governing agencies and the TTC.

In addition to our Peer Review report, we attended City Council meetings and public meetings on behalf of the client and have been influential in the Ministry of the Environment’s considerations to either postpone or reject the proposal.

City processes and systems that are incorporated in the management of roads come with barriers, delays and limited visibility due to outdated and tedious structures in communication, data input, and analysis. We thought that with all the exciting technology and developments to date, there should be a simple way for planning, installation and management of road assets in an application that is as easy to use as the apps we have on our phones.

Alongside the City of Niagara Falls, we did just that. Working with the Transportation Services Department enabled us to create a system that was not only user friendly, simple and applicable to work-flow but also highlighted the importance of incorporating customizable features.

Currently, the City of Niagara Falls uses AssetCity for managing their road signs. This platform enables them to use their work-flow as a way of capturing data that feedbacks to a system that displays information relevant to management and maintenance processes. 

AssetCity has shown to not only simplify data input processes, but almost eliminate gaps in communication that were inevitable in previous processes. It digitizes road signs in a way that maximizes visibility. The integration of AssetCity into your department allows you to track and analyze your assets for systematic upkeep. With continued AssetCity developments we are excited to see where the software continues to add value to departments and cities as a whole.

Since 2014, Trans-Plan has been contracted by the Region of Peel municipal government to provide traffic data collection and reporting services for sites throughout the Region. Studies included Turning Movement Counts at intersections, studies of left-turn vehicle volume and delay, sight distance reviews, gap studies, parking surveys, and a variety of other special surveys.

Data was collected using the most appropriate methods, including video recording and post-analysis, Automatic Traffic Recording (pneumatic tubes), and on-site staffed surveys.

One of the special surveys focused on quantifying vehicular and pedestrian traffic in a small town within the Region which experiences an influx of visitors every year who want to see the scenic fall colours. Counts of vehicles and their occupancy, pedestrians and their origin and destination locations, and turning movement counts at key intersections were recorded using a variety of techniques, including video and in-person counts using tablet-based counting applications that are developed in-house. The results of the survey were used to plan traffic control and tourism marketing.

Behind the Scenes

Noise and Vibration

13572 & 13586 Bayview Avenue, Richmond Hill

Trans-Plan reviewed the surrounding environment for noise sources likely to impact upon the proposed 11-storey residential building. Using a combination of on-site assessments and modeling projections of the nearby roads, we built a noise model of the projected impacts. This model enabled us to make recommendations to the construction specifications, ventilation needs and sound barrier requirements of the building to meet the guidelines of the Ontario Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks, and to ensure a comfortable living environment for future residents.

The Foundation

Proposed Hotel development and future commercial development near Trans-Canada Highway in Newfoundland and Labrador. 

Our Traffic Impact Study and Site Plan review included discussion of the developmental proposal, site statistics, and phasing of development. Trans-Plan’s assessment reviewed existing road network and the impact of the site-generated traffic on the intersections with regard to future conditions. We offered our insight and analysis on recommendations to mitigate any identified traffic impacts on the boundary roadways resulting from the new development.

Our role here assisted with and became a key aspect in development and was a foundational block on the road to completion for this project! 

Pieces to the Puzzle

TIS/TMP/Parking Study & Site Plan Review

We played multiple roles in assisting with the requirements that needed to be met in order for our client to continue their development. 

We reviewed and assessed the existing road network, public transportation, and non-auto modes of travel. We looked at future background conditions based on anticipated traffic growth, area developments and planned transportation improvement in the study area.

We assessed the impact of site-generated traffic on the adjacent roadway network along with alternative modes of travel based on the Region’s guidelines. Additionally, we reviewed site parking, and reviewed recommended rates for the proposed land uses and similar examples.

We review site location, and internal layouts while reviewing outlines by city by-laws.

All About the Data

We take pride in our ability to be our client’s one-stop-shop. Studies require data, and data can take additional time that you may not have. 

Our in-house data services give us the ability to get your projects done sooner and promised accuracy.
