The Transportation Planning team develops long-term plans and policies to guide all modes of transportation in Edmonton. Through key planning initiatives and the Transportation Master Plan (TMP), it sets the vision and long term goals for Edmonton's transportation system.
Facility and Capital Planning
Facility and Capital Planning develops and coordinates concept engineering plans for LRT, roadway, and transit improvements within the City. The section is a key link in the life of a transportation project - helping to take it from policy, through inception and concept planning, to design, construction and implementation.
Development Planning and Engineering
Development Planning and Engineering reviews and approves the transportation components of land use plans and engineering designs for new growth areas, which carries into inspection and acceptance of all the City's private roadway development. This team also administers and applies the Arterial Roadway Assessment Bylaw.
Sustainable Transportation works to encourage and support sustainable transportation options like cycling, walking, and ridesharing. The group also manages and implements programs that address the transportation system’s impact on the community.
Policy Implementation and Evaluation
The Policy Implementation and Evaluation Group manages the creation, implementation and progress measures of the Transportation Master Plan, The Way We Move. They develop and maintain transportation forecasting models and provide transportation records and trends for the City of Edmonton, the public and outside agencies.
The Public Engagement section manages the public involvement, social marketing/public education, and web initiatives for all Transportation projects and programs. This area plays a key role in the development and coordination of all public involvement aspects of the Transportation projects and works to encourage mode-shift behaviour changes.
