NOTICE OF MOTION (FOR CONSIDERATION AT SUBSEQUENT MEETING)
AVIS DE MOTION (POUR EXAMEN LORS D’UNE RÉUNION SUBSÉQUENTE)
Councillor / Conseillère Holmes
WHEREAS the City’s 2009 Transportation Demand Management (TDM) budget lacks funding for workplace programs designed to reduce the use of single occupancy vehicles during peak hours;
AND WHEREAS EnviroCentre’s ecoMobility service is designed to reduce the use of single occupancy vehicles in commuting to work;
BE IT RESOLVED that the Transportation Committee recommends to Council that the City of Ottawa contract EnviroCentre to ensure that City workplaces (up to a total of 20 workplaces) with more than 25 employees and less than 100 employees participates in the ecoMobility service for $500 per workplace, including;
· an online employee survey to determine current modal split;
· customized reports detailing the most feasible TDM strategies to implement at each City workplace;
· facilitation of better commuting options through workshops, seminars and online motivational tools;
· measurements of modal shift, including vehicle reduction, use of more sustainable commuting options, and resulting CO2 reductions.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that if this pilot project succeeds in measured reductions in the use of single occupancy vehicles during peak hours by increasing the use of TDM measures in these workplaces, EnviroCentre will be asked to propose to the Transit Committee and/or the Transportation Committee, ways in which this service could be expanded to cover City workplaces with more than 100 employees.
