Previous Plans 

The Regional Transportatin Master Plan (RTMP) defines how our transportation system will grow and change in the coming decades. It will help the Region offer more travel choices to residents, and make sure our future transportation system is affordable and environmentally sustainable. 

The goal of the plan is to create:

  • a transportation network that centres on transit, with a rapid transit system connecting Waterloo, Kitchener and Cambridge
  • more cycling lanes and pedestrian-friendly routes
  • an expanded bus network, including more express bus service to feed rapid transit stations and better serve the busy residential and commercial centres beyond the rapid transit corridor
  • planned road improvements to ensure movement of goods, relieve traffic problems or support transit
  • supporting policies to help the Region encourage transit ridership, cycling and walking, manage congestion and promote vibrant urban places. 

The plan sets a goal that by 2031, 15 per cent of all trips in Waterloo Region be by transit and 12 per cent of all trips be by cycling or walking.
