Transportation Master Plan

The 2013 Transportation Master Plan (TMP) builds on the work of previous plans carried out in 2003 and 2008.

On November 26, 2013 Ottawa City Council unanimously approved the Transportation Master Plan, Official Plan, Infrastructure Master Plan, Ottawa Cycling Plan and Ottawa Pedestrian Plan. Together, these five plans set the vision for Ottawa's future growth to 2031.

The Transportation Master Plan (TMP) identifies the transportation facilities, services and policies that the City of Ottawa will implement to serve a projected population of 1.14 million people by 2031. It sets direction for the City's day-to-day transportation programs and provides a basis for budget planning that is consistent with the growth management policies of the City's Official Plan.

The TMP will come to life through mechanisms such as long-range financial plans, mid-range implementation plans, annual budgets, program development, area and corridor transportation studies, design or practice guidelines, and Community Design Plans.

The need to update this plan will be reviewed in conjunction with a similar assessment of the Official Plan, which is required every five years. Over the intervening time period, readers seeking a current statement of City transportation policies must consult the record of Council decisions in addition to this plan.
