The Cycling and Trails Master Plan

a separated bike lane on a busy road

We’re working to better connect Kitchener through trails and cycling! Our Cycling and Trails Master Plan will lay the groundwork for a connected network of bikeways and trails.

We've asked more than 2,000 Kitchener residents what they want to see from the city's cycling and trails infrastructure. That feedback was used to develop a draft network.

Let us know if the draft network reflects your feedback by clicking the 'take survey' tab. Do you have specific feedback about a location or route that's important to you? Click the 'drop a pin' tab for an interactive view of our draft network and make a suggestion!

Citywide spine network

about 2 months

This is the proposed network of 'spines' that will connect Kitchener's cycling and trails infrastructure, better enabling cyclists and pedestrians to travel across the city using bikeways and trails.

Green routes indicate the spine network and grey lines indicate our existing infrastructure.

Important Destinations

about 1 month

Cycling and trails infrastructure must be designed with high-priority destinations in mind, which is why we've developed the Important Destinations activity.

This map has been populated with Kitchener's existing cycling infrastructure and trail networks, as well as our ION rapid transit routes. To give us your feedback, simply click an drag the plus icon (+) to drop a pin on a destination in Kitchener that you feel should be accessible through our cycling and trails networks. Add a short description to indicate the destination your pin represents. Add as many as you like!
