Draft Recommendations
The draft Transportation Master Plan offers a vision of ‘Freedom to Move’ for the future of transportation in Mississauga, achieved through the pursuit of six goals:

  • Safety: Freedom from Harm - Safe conditions for all travellers by advancing Vision Zero
  • Inclusion: Freedom from Barriers - An accessible network for all
  • Integration: Freedom of Choice - An integrated network for moving within and beyond the City
  • Connectivity: Freedom of Access - Simple and pleasant connections between people and places
  • Resilience: Freedom to Evolve - Ability to adapt to changes in the transportation system
  • Health: Freedom to Flourish - Support for the health of people and the planet

Nearly 100 action items are proposed that can move Mississauga toward these goals. The plan proposes 26 actions specific to achieving the Safety Goal.

Background
Beginning in 2017, the City’s Mississauga Moves project asked the community to share their thoughts on the future planning of roads, sidewalks, trails and transit. This input was considered along with research and data analysis to develop a plan to guide the City’s investment in and stewardship of the transportation system from today to 2041.
