Slow street being used by car and bike, with sign indicating local traffic and shared space for pedestrians, cyclists and drivers.

Earlier this year, city council unanimously approved a motion directing staff to review opportunities to create more active transportation space to help with physical distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Staff developed some new measures, and fast-tracked others to create safer spaces for walking, cycling and other modes of active transportation. The new initiatives include slow streets, reduced speed and traffic calmed streets, and closed streets. If you haven't come across any of these areas yet, there's a full list of streets and details on our website. You may have also noticed temporary cycling lanes in the city; the Region of Waterloo is working on their own projects to support active transportation.

We'd like to hear from you about how you feel using these new, temporary spaces, and whether anything we've done has encouraged you to walk, bike or otherwise be more active when it comes to transportation. Please take a few moments to complete our survey, and to share any additional comments or stories about your experiences in our Guestbook.
