Thank you to everyone who took time to share feedback during Phase 1 of the Transportation Master Plan: 2050.
You helped the project team understand how Winnipeggers view the city’s transportation network, as well as how they use it, where they are challenged, and in what broad areas they would like to see improvements.
This feedback is critical to helping us understand the current state of the transportation network, as well as how to plan for a transportation system that is sustainable, equitable, and most of all, serves the people of Winnipeg.
Most notably, Phase 1 told us:
- What Winnipeggers value most and where we have common ground
- What motivates our transportation choices
- What we are most concerned about
- By car (driver or passenger) - 83% of Winnipeggers use always/often
- On foot (or with mobility device) – 24% of Winnipeggers use always/often
- By bus (including Winnipeg Transit Plus) – 11% of Winnipeggers use always/often
- By bike – 6% of Winnipeggers use always/often
- Transportation network maintenance
- Safety outside a vehicle
- Efficient use of time
A comprehensive explanation of results is available in the public engagement summary and public engagement report. These are the ‘what we heard’ reports. The ‘what we did with what we heard’ sections will be provided in Phase 2.
This input, combined with findings from the technical process, is being used to create options and opportunities. The Current State Report and summary focuses on contextualizing the four key components of the city’s transportation network components as well as the outside factors that most influence how Winnipeggers use the network. It primarily looks at: roadways, goods movement, active transportation and transit. It also touches on emerging technologies and future spatial requirements for all roadway users.
Phase 2 public engagement is planned to launch in fall 2021. The project team will share strategies to reach Winnipeg’s long-term vision for transportation and your feedback will help us answer the question: How do we get where we’re going?
