Regional Transportation Plan and Next Steps

The Draft Final 2041 RTP builds upon the strong support expressed towards the Draft 2041 Regional Transportation Plan’s vision, goals and strategies and reflects the extensive feedback received from provincial, municipal, NGO and public stakeholders, as summarized in the Engagement Report. The Paper is intended to launch the dialogue about implementation, setting out key considerations, principles and opportunities for analysis and engagement that would realize the 2041 RTP. Through the Paper we will engage with our provincial, municipal, and non-governmental partners and input received will guide activities over the life of the plan.
