2019 Active Transportation Master Plan Endorsed by Council
On September 25, 2019 Brampton City Council ‘endorsed’ the Active Transportation Master Plan.
The Plan was initiated in January 2016. Its development involved hundreds of hours of consultations with the public, stakeholders, partnering public agencies, City Council and staff.
The City of Brampton would like to thank everyone who took the time to attend one of our public sessions.
About the Active Transportation Master Plan
The City’s first ever Active Transportation Master Plan provides the network plan, policies and programs to support Brampton’s 2040 Vision for a mosaic of safe, integrated transportation choices and new modes, contributions to civic sustainability, and emphasizing walking, cycling, and transit.
Active Transportation (walking, cycling and other self-propelled mobility options) presents one of the greatest untapped opportunities for reducing single occupant vehicle trips, and for addressing a host of community design and public health issues. Incorporating global best practices in active transportation and promoting the concept of 'complete streets' and 'sustainable' community design is a guiding principle for the City’s planning and engineering efforts.
The Active Transportation Master Plan focuses on the implementation strategy for building a connected cycling and pedestrian network across the City (and connecting to neighbouring municipalities) to enable safer, more convenient travel by non-motorized modes, and to encourage cycling as a viable means of transportation for both recreational and utilitarian purposes for the general public.
The completion of the Plan marks the end of one chapter and the beginning of another. Staff will continue implementing the Plan’s recommendations.
