Survey gathers transportation preferences for Master Plan update
October 28, 2013 -
Starting November 4, the City will conduct a phone and online survey to gather information about transportation preferences in Kingston as it prepares to update its Kingston Transportation Master Plan (KTMP).
"We use the Transportation Master Plan to guide decision-making on major infrastructure and service decisions, so we are checking-in with the public on the direction it offers and will make course corrections, if necessary," says Deanna Green, Manager, Traffic Division. "If you want your say on how we balances transportation efforts over the next 20 years, now's your chance."
The City has engaged Vari/Fact to conduct the phone survey of 400 Kingstonians to find out how they travel around the city and to collect their preferences regarding forms of transportation, including: walking, cycling, public transit, carpooling, ride-sharing, parking and riding, and driving. An online version of the 10-minute survey is available at www.CityofKingston.ca/getinvolved (until the phone survey has achieved 400 responses).
Initially finalized in 2004, the KTMP guides the City's transportation-related efforts, including the building of infrastructure to accommodate walking, public transit, cycling, 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
