Cities cannot and should not become fixed in time; they are living creatures that evolve and develop over time. The most dynamic and successful cities embrace change by integrating public and private realms with world-class architecture and infrastructure, creating a kind of urban fabric woven from people, places, and things.

He has prepared numerous policy reviews, land use investigations, highest and best use analyses, market/financial analyses, site plans, district/master plans and land disposition strategies on behalf of public, institutional and private sector clients. He has been the Project Director or Project Manager for a range of complex real estate and master planning projects involving lands throughout Canada. As a result of Jay’s practical knowledge of the planning process and his excellent working relationships with staff at all levels of government, he has obtained timely planning approvals and successfully negotiated conditions and partnerships for small and large-scale residential developments, commercial, office, institutional and industrial projects.

Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Our increasing frustration with growing traffic congestion is matched by our inability to doing something about it. We need to do more with less as our problems become more complex and solutions more expensive. Creative and innovative solutions are needed to address today's transportation challenges, but they need to be cost-effective, tied to our goals, and supported by technical analyses rooted in common sense. We can meet the challenge because we must.

Bruce Mori has more than 20 years of consulting experience that spans the globe. He specializes in transportation systems planning and travel demand forecasting for major metropolitan areas and Landmark Events with a focus on rapid transit systems, integrated transportation land use planning, and sustainable transportation principles. He has responsibility within IBI Group for transportation planning, travel demand forecasting, transportation-related environmental assessments, travel demand forecasting, toll traffic and revenue studies, and rapid transit/LRT and road/highway design. Bruce’s experience includes major studies across North America and in the rapidly developing cities of the Middle East.
