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)

Thank you to all the faculty, staff and students who completed the recent online questionnaire for the Transportation Strategy and who attended the drop-in session on Friday, Nov. 2, 2018. Over the coming weeks, Parsons – our consultant – will be analyzing the data collected during the traffic (vehicles, bikes, pedestrians) counts conducted at the beginning of October; from the online questionnaire; and comments from the drop-in session. This information will help inform the development of the five-year Transportation Strategy.

We will keep the campus community updated as we move through this process.

Thank you,

Trevor Stewart, Director, Capital Renewal & Construction
