Welcome to the Transportation Strategy website. Here you will find all the information about the process to develop the strategy as we move forward.

Over the next few months, Carleton University will be developing a five-year Transportation Strategy for the campus. This strategy will take into account all modes of transportation and how members of our community move around on our campus.

We have hired the international firm Parsons to guide us through this process, which will take into account the Campus Master Plan. Trevor Stewart, director of Construction Services, and Brian Billings, director of Campus Safety Services, are working with Parsons on this initiative.

The goal is to develop a transportation strategy that provides the following:

  1. Choice (i.e. walking, biking and transit should all be as available, safe, affordable and reliable as driving is today)
  2. Safety (i.e. each mode is allocated space relative to its vulnerability) and
  3. Optimization of infrastructure (including optimization of transit routes and parking supply)

How you can get involved!


We want to hear from our faculty, staff and students. Please provide us your input by completing this questionnaire at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/8G6BQKB[surveymonkey.com]

The questionnaire will be open until Nov. 6.

Drop-In Session:

On Friday, Nov. 2, all faculty, staff and students are invited to drop-in from 11:30 a.m. – 2 p.m. to the University Centre Galleria to ask questions, provide ideas and input about the Carleton Transportation Strategy. Representatives from Parsons, Construction Services, Campus Safety Services and the Sustainability Office will be on hand to hear from you. We hope to see you there!
