Transportation Planning was founded by Roy Symons P.Eng. in December 2014. It is a place to record my random thoughts on how we move around, whether by walking or cycling, transit or automobile, and how urban design influences that.
Roy is a graduate of the B.Eng. Civil and Transportation Engineering program at Napier University, Edinburgh in 2000. He worked as a Transportation Planner on a variety of projects throughout Scotland before moving to British Columbia in 2008. Today, Roy is Manager of Transportation Planning with ISL Engineering and Land Services in British Columbia. He now spends his time working to improve communities by making good transportation planning decisions.

Interesting Urbanism Photo Series
Interesting Urbanism is a place for me to post more curated series of photos about a particular place, project, or infrastructure type. Whereas Flickr provides a range of snapshots, Interesting Urbanism provides hopefully higher quality images and an outlet for me to play with photography. Interesting Urbanism photo series can be viewed here > www.interesting-urbanism.com
flickr Photo Albums
My Flickr page has over 4,000 images of transportation organized by city and infrastructure type. It's mostly focussed on active modes and cycling in particular, but also includes various other transportation modes and street elements. My Flickr albums can be found here > https://www.flickr.com/photos/roysymons/albums
YouTube Infrastructure Videos
My YouTube page 'Rolling in the City' literally provides videos of me rolling in the city, or many cities, with a camera strapped to my bars, you can experience how other cities and their infrastructure feels to ride, and appreciate the level of comfort that high quality facilities for all ages and abilities provides. A few examples are provided below, and the channel can be viewed here > https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSkVx5AEW0NLdmyUphzxfCQ
