Sustainable Transportation Strategy

With a 40% population increase in Peel by 2041, the increasing demand on the transportation system cannot be met by building more roads. We require new and innovative solutions to meet future needs. The Sustainable Transportation Strategy outlines the Region of Peel's roles and responsibilities to significantly increase the number of trips made by walking, cycling, transit, carpooling, and trips avoided through teleworking. The 2041 target of 50% of trips made by sustainable transportation modes aligns with the Region of Peel's Long Range Transportation Plan, representing a 13% increase from current conditions. More than 50 actions are recommended, many in partnership with municipalities, transit agencies, and other organizations. Apart from improving transportation system performance, having more people use sustainable transportation will also have benefits to public health and the natural environment.
