Momentum collaborated with the company UTILE Trois-Rivières for the realization of a sustainable mobility study for the project of a future student residence near the University of Quebec in Trois-Rivières. The study conducted by Momentum aimed to achieve the sustainable mobility vision of the project, by proposing a reduction of the ratio of parking spaces. The objective of the project was indeed to put forward the accessibility of the site by alternative modes of transportation and to promote active and collective mobility for the future residents and students of the UQTR. Data collection was conducted during the pandemic, therefore the analysis was built assuming that the residence was at a maximum capacity in 2020, and the occupancy ratios were adjusted accordingly.
Momentum conducted an initial data collection exercise to assess the occupancy and use of the university’s parking lots. The analysis conducted then highlighted the public transit network and the pedestrian and cycling connections available near the selected site. Finally, an action plan proposing a set of specific measures, their benefits as well as the responsibility of the various bodies involved in order to improve the sustainable mobility offer for students.
