Abstract: The City of Vancouver, in partnership with TransLink, VANOC, and Transport Canada, appointed the Civil Engineering Department of the University of British Columbia (UBC) to conduct the monitoring of transportation through the Vancouver Downtown peninsula during the 2010 Olympic Winter Games. UBC was well poised to take on this challenge given the expertise and experience available within the Civil Engineering Department, as well as access to the 84 engineering graduate and undergraduate student supervisors and surveyors hired to fulfill the relatively large study scope within the effective two-week window of the Games. The data comprised of 3 samples of 24hr and partial-day screenline counts of all travel entering or leaving the downtown area by all modes. Additionally, intercept surveys captured the travel behaviour and choices of spectators and participants of Downtown Olympic-related events. The data was collected in a high-quality manner both in design and conduct, and this continued through to the cleaning, processing, imputation, and summary of the resulting data. The results of the Host City Downtown Monitoring Study will be part of the legacy of the 2010 Olympic Winter Games.
