Moving in the right direction

Ottawa has grown into a city of one million residents. Over the next 25 years, that number is expected to grow to more than 1.4 million. With that kind of growth, we need to revisit how people, vehicles and goods move through our city.

As we set the vision for our updated Transportation Master Plan, we have important decisions to make as individuals and as a city. While some might be easy, others will require more thought. We need to have thoughtful and meaningful discussions to ensure Ottawa becomes the most liveable mid-sized city in North America.

Transportation decisions affect all of Ottawa’s residents and businesses. No matter if you walk, drive, cycle, bus, take the light rail transit or scoot, whether you ship products or have them delivered, or whether you own or share a car, how people and goods move through the city affects you. All the choices we make moving forward will require some give and take. Tell us what’s important to you and how our transportation system can move us in the right direction for decades to come.

Stay involved!

    Transportation Master Plan Update Environmental Assessment Process

    The City of Ottawa is undertaking a review and update of the Transportation Master Plan, Ottawa Pedestrian Plan, and Ottawa Cycling Plan. The update is being conducted in accordance with the requirements of Phases 1 and 2 of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment, which is an approved process under Ontario’s Environmental Assessment Act.

    The TMP is the roadmap for the planning and operation of the City’s walking, cycling, transit and road networks over the next several decades. This Transportation Master Plan Update is an opportunity to create an inclusive, affordable, and well-organized transportation network that supports the new Official Plan’s goal of making Ottawa the most liveable mid-sized city in North America.

    For the first round of engagement, until January 24, 2020 the City of Ottawa invites residents to fill out an online questionnaire to share what is important to them and how our transportation system can move us in the right direction for decades to come! Residents will also have an opportunity to provide input through additional engagement activities over the course of the two-and-a-half-year project.

    Public engagement is a key component of the Transportation Master Plan Update with opportunities for public and stakeholder involvement at each phase of the study. Times and locations for engagement opportunities will be announced over the course of the project. Comments are welcome at all times through the project website or by contacting the City of Ottawa’s Project Manager.

    Visit www.Ottawa.ca/TMPUpdate today for more information on the project and to fill out the questionnaire.
