Toronto’s Olympic Village was set on the scenic shores of Lake Ontario. BA Group demonstrated how to accommodate the transportation needs of 16,800 athletes and officials, 20,000 members of the press, and 500,000 spectators per day.
As part of Consortium 2015, BA Group reviewed each of three possible sites, identifying transportation demands, likely mode shares, facility and operational requirements, and transportation challenges to be met. We also consulted on the planning of a sustainable community to rise in the fair’s wake.
In the summer of 2007, BA Group provided site selection, access, parking, and overall site planning for the City of Toronto Arts & Music Festival. Over 50,000 visitors were accommodated at the multi-day event, which included a festival, concert, and cultural fair.
