Hosted by  Sameer Patil, TMC Leader

Using everything from drones, virtual reality goggles, realtime data from citizens using traffic navigation apps, and even humour, The City of Calgary’s Traffic Management Centre is always exploring inventive solutions to keep Calgarians on the move in our winter city. Join us for a guided tour of our newly renovated Centre that uses state-of-the-art technologies to gather realtime traffic information that impacts our winter service, traffic signal operation, and management. Walk through the Calgary Traffic Management Centre and learn how we incorporate many innovative technologies and hear how our new Traffic Tuesday program aims to make motorists smile through humorous traffic safety messages. Explore our multilayered approach to communicating with motorists in real-time about traffic conditions, congestion, lane closures, and construction delays to keep traffic moving and ensure everyone’s safety. In managing national parks, Parks Canada maintains and restores ecological integrity, while providing Canadians with opportunities to safely discover and enjoy these special places. Through this virtual excursion on the Trans-Canada Highway you will be introduced to two innovative aspects of highway management in Banff National Park.
