Pan Am Games Strategic Framework announced
DateMarch 17, 2014
TORONTO – Michael Chan, Ontario Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport, has unveiled the Strategic Framework for Transportation for the 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games prepared by IBI Group.
The framework identifies transportation challenges and needs, sets objectives, and identifies strategies to move spectators, athletes, and officials during the Games while keeping the region functioning.
The team that created the plan was led by Bruce Mori and Andrea Lendak in IBI Group’s Transportation Planning department in Toronto.
“IBI Group is proud to have worked in partnership with the Ministry of Transportation’s Pan Am/Parapan Am Games Branch and members of the Pan Am/Parapan Am Transportation Team (PATT) to develop the Strategic Framework over the past 12 months,” said Bruce Mori, Director at IBI Group. “Development of the Strategic Framework included extensive consultation with partners to identify appropriate strategies to meet Games transportation needs.”
The plan is themed “Let’s go!” in the playful spirit of sport. Project team members in Toronto built upon IBI Group’s experience in planning for major events, such as the recent London 2012 Summer Olympics. The Games will be a marquee event in the region next summer and will also serve as a qualifying event for many Olympic sports in advance of the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
The Games are set to run from July 7–26 and August 7–15, 2015, and will have more athletes than the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.
