We're updating the city's transportation master plan and we need your help!

Project Background

The City of Waterloo is undertaking a study to review and update the community's transportation master plan. The objectives of the study are to:

  • Develop a guiding transportation policy document
  • Provide more travel options;
  • Describe how to develop a community that is less reliant on cars for travel
  • Describe how the city can leverage recent investments in light rail transit (ION) and active transportation to encourage citizens to walk, cycle and use transit more

The revised plan will provide an up-to-date strategy for moving people and goods around the city now and into the future. With Waterloo changing and growing, the transportation system needs to adapt to who we are today and where we want to be in 25 years.

Please consider sharing your thoughts and comments on the future of transportation in the city through this page or by emailing WaterlooTMP@ptsl.com.

Thank You for Your Feedback in Phase 1!

Last summer, we asked community members where they go in Waterloo, what transportation modes they use, and what challenges they experience when moving around the city. You can read What We Heard in our Phase 1 Engagement Summary.

Now Launching Phase 2!

Our team has developed draft policy directions and network plans for the city’s future transportation system, and we want your feedback. The updated material includes information related to:

  • Guiding Philosophies and Strategies such as Complete Streets, Vision Zero and Emerging Technologies
  • Network Planning and Design guidance for active transportation and roadways; and
  • Operations and Maintenance strategies for winter maintenance of active transportation facilities and speed limits in the City.

You can provide feedback by completing our online survey before April 30. Please note, the timelines for this engagement have been extended due to the changing circumstances related to COVID-19.

    This survey presents the draft policy directions for the three theme areas of the Transportation Master Plan:

    Guiding Philosophies and Strategies - includes complete streets, vision zero and emerging technologies.

    Planning and Design - includes road network classification, road network projects, active transportation network and active transportation network wayfinding signage

    Operations and Maintenance - includes winter maintenance and 40km/h speed limit

    All questions are optional. Feel free to comment on all the policy areas, or just those that are of interest to you.
