Abstract: Barriers exist when implementing Multi-Modal Transportation (MMT) strategies which may complicate or hinder the process or project. This research seeks to explore the perceived barriers in two New Brunswick case studies and to determine whether MMT is appropriate for the province. Semi-structured interviews are utilized to gather data from twelve key informants who work or advocate in relation to transportation. The research found nine themed barriers to MMT, human nature and funding being the two barriers most emphasized by informants as having a great impact against MMT strategies. MMT is perceived to be important but not applicable throughout New Brunswick. Transportation is noted as a problem in the province which requires addressing, and addressing the lack of alternatives beyond the single occupant vehicle. The research concludes that MMT is positively perceived, but transportation is an existing issue and that there are perceived barriers to implementing MMT solutions in the province.
