Moving Guelph Forward

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Guelph is growing and how we move around our city is changing. We're exploring transportation options to make our city move better in every way.

We need to work together to create a strong plan for transportation in Guelph. We have tough choices to make to ensure we properly balance the needs of everyone in our community today and tomorrow.

Where we’re at

The project is moving ahead at full speed. In November, we shared our virtual ‘Story Maps’ which included our values, goals, problem statements and draft alternative solutions for transportation in Guelph. We also presented four transportation options and asked for feedback in an online survey.

Our preliminary evaluation shows that Alternative 2 - Sustainability Focus and Alternative 3 – Sustainability + Resiliency Focus were both comparable as draft preferred solutions in achieving the goals and values of the TMP. Both alternatives encourage walking, cycling and travel by bus by creating walkable streets, developing a core network of cycling links and reducing bus travel times in critical transit corridors, while improving capacity for cars.

Give us your feedback by February 9

Let us know if you support the draft preliminary preferred solution. Learn more by viewing our updated interactive virtual open house (StoryMap) and completing the survey below by February 9, 2021.

Next steps

We’ll use community and stakeholder feedback and further technical analysis to develop a recommended transportation approach for Council consideration later this year.

    I thought today, June 21, 2021 there was to be a review of the proposed Stone Road bike lanes, Hanlon to Edinburgh? I don't see it posted. Can you direct me to where it is?

    Hello Mapleheads,

    You are right. To day is the day. The Stone Road cycling improvements project will be published very shortly. You should see it if you check back in to haveyoursay.guelph.ca  in an hour or less.

    The problem with your car priority route is that drivers like to zoom through the Pedestrian priority St George neighbourhood with two school zones via Grange and Metcalfe, to bypass Stevenson where car specific construction has been done to connect to connect Victoria/Grange/York with Eramosa/Speedvale. Traffic calming is required in the residential areas between car priority zones to allow safe shared mode use.

    Thank you for your comment! The Transportation master plan is looking at long-term network planning, policies, and programs to support the goals of the plan. It will not get down to the level of detail of detour routes for specific construction projects. For comments specific to construction or detour routes in your community, please contact the project engineer. You can find contact information at https://guelph.ca/living/construction-projects/

    I am contacting you on behalf of an advocacy group in Guelph for people with disabilities. Being a person who has an electric wheelchair and many friends with mobility needs such as walkers I would suggest that the seats are easier to lift up if needed to make more room for Wheel chairs and strollers. Also it is a struggle for space and makes it difficult for people to walk through the isle when two wheelchairs are on the bus. The ramps that go into the bus need to be wider as they are pretty narrow. We would love it if the bus could run later on Sundays and holidays. Thank you for considering our needs.

    Thank you for your comments. All new Guelph Transit bus vehicles are equipped with seats that lift up. Specific details on bus design and accessibility are beyond the scope of the Transportation Master Plan. Your comments have been shared with staff at Guelph Transit for their consideration.

    These areas have been reviewed as part of the Guelph Transit Route Review. Proposals will be made public later this spring when public engagement begins. All changes are subject to Council approval.

    I would like you to redesign the 9Waterloo run. At Imperial it turns right to Paisley left at Elmira to Fife and then returns. This way People along the route can use the Paisley Mall and Costco without having to take multiple buses and you still have service for ppl living on Fife to Downtown. When you altered the route you turned it into a nothing run. We can do better than a mere residential run and allow residents quick access to shopping and banking. Thank you Mark Jenssen
