The City has launched consultation for the Transportation Master Plan – Part 2. Have your say on the future of transportation in Ottawa by completing the surveys on our project page.

The Transportation Master Plan (TMP) is the City’s blueprint for planning, building, and operating its walking, cycling, transit and vehicular networks in the decades to come. Together, we have important decisions to make to help Ottawa become the most liveable mid-sized city in North America.

Ottawa has grown into a city of one million residents. Over the next two decades, Ottawa will gain approximately 400,000 new residents and 160,000 new jobs. With that kind of growth, we need to plan for a flexible, dependable, safe and efficient transportation network for people, vehicles and goods to move through our city.

Part 1 of the TMP resulted  in the Council-approved Policies and Active Transportation Projects and Networks.

The next step in the process, or TMP – Part 2, is to develop the City’s Capital Infrastructure Plan. The Capital Infrastructure Plan will identify the recommended road, transit and active transportation projects and investments to accommodate Ottawa’s expected growth to 2046.

Residents are invited to complete online surveys by August 30.

We are looking for your input on:

  • Transportation challenges experienced when travelling by car or transit
  • Transportation investment priorities

The results of this public engagement will inform the development of the Capital Infrastructure Plan.

You are also invited to review the Transportation Trends Report summarizing the 2022 Origin-Destination survey results, and the Needs, Opportunities and Uncertainty Report that discusses the various trends that may impact future travel activity, and the City’s approach to travel demand forecasting to 2046. Both reports can be found on our public engagement page.

The City will also host an online virtual public engagement on June 26 from 6pm to 8pm. To register and to find out more information about the project, please visit
