- Winnipeg Pedestrian and Cycling Strategies
The City of Winnipeg's Pedestrian and Cycling Strategies are intended to encourage walking and cycling as attractive, convenient and accessible transportation choices for people of all ages and abilities in Winnipeg. These strategies will lead to healthier, more livable communities with social, environmental, land use and economic benefits for all. The Pedestrian and Cycling Strategies, the first of their kind for Winnipeg, spring from the City’s 2011 Transportation Master Plan, which calls for making continuous improvements to the City-wide cycling network and making walking a more attractive choice for travel.
The Pedestrian and Cycling Strategies will help shape changes in infrastructure and support programs that will encourage all of us to walk and cycle more – whether for work, pleasure, or day to day personal travels for shopping, visiting friends and family, or running errands. The Pedestrian and Cycling Strategies will provide direction for civic investments in infrastructure and support programs over the short, medium, and long-term to help make walking and cycling safe, convenient, attractive, and fun.
A key component in the development of the Pedestrian and Cycling Strategies planning has been public engagement. The City heard directly from thousands of Winnipeggers throughout the process through online and telephone surveys, public open houses, stakeholder meetings and a workshop, and through the project website. This feedback was instrumental in developing the recommendations and plans in the Pedestrian and Cycling Strategies. Thank you for your input!
