The Way We Move Transportation Master Plan (TMP) supports the City Vision and identifies seven goals that reflect The Way Ahead, the City's 10-year strategic plan.
Transportation and Land Use Integration
The transportation system and land use / urban design complement and support each other so that the use of transit and transportation infrastructure, including the use of transit, is optimized and supports best practices for land use.
Access and Mobility
The transportation system is interconnected and integrated to allow people and goods to move efficiently throughout the city and to provide reasonable access with a variety of modes for people across demographic, geographic, socio-economic, and mobility spectrums.
Transportation Mode Shift
Public transportation and active transportation are the preferred choice for more people making it possible for the transportation system to move more people more efficiently in fewer vehicles.
Transportation decisions reflect an integrated approach to environmental, financial, and social impacts thereby creating sustainable, livable communities that minimize the need for new infrastructure and increase quality of life.
Health and Safety
The transportation system supports healthy, active lifestyles, and addresses user safety and security including access for emergency services, contributing to Edmonton’s livability.
The transportation system is planned and developed so that the city is able to keep it in a good state of repair and future growth is accommodated in a fiscally responsible and sustainable manner.
Efficient movement of goods, convenient mobility of the labour force, and access to a vibrant city centre are features of the transportation system that enhance the economic vitality and competitive advantage of Edmonton and the Region.
