You need to get around our city - and our job is to make local travel as easy as possible, whether you're walking, cycling, riding public transit or driving yourself.

Our transportation master plan guides our work, providing direction on how we can improve our pedestrian, cycling, transit and roadway infrastructure.

Some of the objectives of the study include:

  • developing a series of transportation policies that range from traffic control (traffic signals, roundabouts, etc.) to traffic calming and truck-route management
  • providing planning direction to the year 2031, with specific focus on alternative modes of transportation (walking, cycling and transit)
  • supporting an integrated system that includes regional bus and rapid-transit systems
  • motivating the community to be less reliant on cars

Great results

Our transportation master plan is producing several benefits for our community, including:

  • reduced vehicle emissions and demand for parking
  • improved air quality
  • increased use of alternative travel options
  • lower personal transportation costs and energy consumption
  • improved public health and quality of life
  • delayed/reduced need for roadway related infrastructure expansion

A winning combination

In addition to our transportation master plan, other strategies that are helping us address existing and future transportation needs include our:
