How do you like to get around Kingston? City seeks more input for KTMP Update
November 25, 2013 -
Attention pedestrians, cyclists, transit users and motorists: work on updating the Kingston Transportation Master Plan (KTMP) is now underway and the City would like your comments on all modes of transportation.
Help us plan for a system that meets the needs of pedestrians, cyclists, transit and motor vehicles. Residents can make their transportation choices count by participating in a transportation survey at www.CityofKingston.ca/getinvolved. This survey will remain live until early spring of 2014.
"A phone survey of 400 residents has already been completed, but we decided to extend the deadline for the online survey to gather as much public input as possible. The Kingston Transportation Master Plan is important since it will guide future City decisions for pedestrian and cycling infrastructure, transit service and roadways," says Deanna Green, Manager, Traffic Division. Just shy of 300 online responses have been received since the survey started on October 28.
Initially finalized in 2004, the KTMP guides the City's transportation-related efforts, including the building of infrastructure to accommodate walking, cycling, public transit, driving and air travel. The KTMP was most recently updated in 2009 and has been augmented by other guiding City documents, including:
- Cycling and Pathways Study
- Kingston Airport Study
- Kingston Transit Redevelopment Plan
