Moving Forward

Graphic with the words Moving Forward

Introduction 

The Region of Waterloo is updating its Transportation Master Plan called "Moving Forward", about how people and goods will get around over the next 25 years. The plan lays out our vision, goals, objectives and priorities, and includes Regional roads, Grand River Transit, cycling, walking, trucking, travel outside the Region, and managing travel demand.

Public Consultation

Separtated Bike lane Network Pilot Project

The Region is piloting a set of different types of separated bike lanes to better understand how they influence existing and future cyclist behaviour. We also want to determine methods of construction and maintenance for similar Regional projects in the future.

A separated bike lane is a designated and protected travel lane for bicycles along a road, which provides separation to create space for people on bikes away from moving or parked vehicles. This temporary network of separated bike lanes will provide direct, safe routes connecting neighbourhoods, transit hubs, employment areas, and other destinations.
