The Way We Move: Edmonton’s Transportation Master Plan (TMP)

The Way We Move sets up a framework for how the City will respond to its future transportation needs. One of the TMP’s highest priorities is shifting transportation modes by:

  • Ensuring sustainable transit and increasing transit ridership
  • Improving travel options to reduce barriers between transportation modes
  • Increasing traffic safety
  • Managing traffic congestion to facilitate mobility across the City

One of the ways to achieve these goals is by expanding the LRT network. The LRT contributes to the City’s vitality by ensuring accessibility for everyone, links to a great number of destinations and integration with other modes of transportation. LRT expansion helps ensure a transportation system that provides mobility and choice for everyone, every day.

Efficient

  • Links to more destinations and more direct transit, pedestrian and cyclist connections
  • Reliable, frequent service (a train every five minutes at peak times serves the equivalent number of people as 12 roadway lanes)

Healthy and Safe

  • Integration of LRT with land use development to support healthy, active lifestyles
  • Integration of visual elements to minimize intrusion and maximize openness for greater safety

Affordable

  • Saving money on fuel, parking and vehicle maintenance
  • Convenient, reliable mobility for all Edmontonians

Accessible

  • Bringing LRT to all sectors of the city, making transit an accessible, easy choice
  • Creating smaller-scale stations spaced closer together, increasing proximity to more neighbourhoods
  • Reducing speeds to allow LRT to move safely within pedestrian-oriented communities, and imposing fewer barriers
  • Contributing towards walkable, connected communities

Environment

  • Reducing greenhouse gas emissions
