Transportation Master Plan

The City is undertaking a two-and-a-half year process to update its Transportation Master Plan (TMP), together with the accompanying Ottawa Cycling Plan and Ottawa Pedestrian Plan. The TMP, together with the accompanying Ottawa Cycling Plan and Ottawa Pedestrian Plan, is the City’s blueprint for planning, developing and operating its walking, cycling, transit and road networks over the next two decades. Residents now have their first opportunity to provide input into the master plan by completing a short online questionnaire about what they consider important as we update the plan.
