Cycling and Trails Master Plan


The Cycling and Trails Master Plan

Over the next year, city staff and our team of consultants will be reaching out all across the city to hear from people about how we can make Kitchener a great place to walk and bike. Sign up for Bike Kitchener email updates and we’ll keep you informed of all the fun opportunities to get involved. Our new Cycling & Trails Master Plan will serve as the catalyst for building a city where people willingly and joyfully choose active transportation for getting around. We’re partnering with Urban Systems, Dillon Consulting and 8-80 cities to draw on their expertise in “all ages and abilities” cycling and trails networks and to deliver a fun and inclusive community engagement process that gets more people involved and out on their bikes.

Our second round of public engagement is happening now!

We spoke to more than 2,000 Kitchener residents during our first round of public consultation during the summer, and we used that feedback to define the goals and approach we will use for the Cycling and Trails Master Plan. Let us know what you think of this approach, and see draft concepts of what the final network could look like.

Complete the survey by Saturday, Nov. 30 to have your feedback reflected in the final plan:

Public Engagement Results:

Throughout June and early July, the Cycling and Trails Master Plan project team engaged Kitchener residents about how they use Active Transportation infrastructure, and what would encourage them to do so more often.

A summary of those results can be found here:

The project team would like to thank everyone that took the time to provide their feedback, your input will be used to inform an initial set of recommendations. A second round of public engagement will be conducted in fall 2019 on those initial recommendations to validate that they accurately reflect the feedback we’ve received. Subscribe to this page to be notified when that engagement begins.
