The City of Winnipeg is developing strategies to encourage walking and cycling as attractive, convenient and accessible transportation choices for people of all ages and abilities in Winnipeg. These strategies will lead to healthier, more livable communities with social, environmental, land use and economic benefits for all. The Pedestrian and Cycling Strategies, the first of their kind for Winnipeg, spring from the City’s 2011 Transportation Master Plan, which calls for making continuous improvements to the City-wide cycling network and making walking a more attractive choice for travel.

The Pedestrian and Cycling Strategies will help shape changes in infrastructure and support programs that will encourage all of us to walk and cycle more – whether for work, pleasure, or day to day personal travels for shopping, visiting friends and family, or running errands. The Pedestrian and Cycling Strategies will provide direction for civic investments in infrastructure and support programs over the short, medium, and long-term to help make walking and cycling safe, convenient, attractive, and fun.

Get involved!

We need your input! Work is well under way on the Pedestrian and Cycling Strategies, and they will continue be developed over the next several months, with anticipated completion in early 2014. As potential strategies are studied, we hope Winnipeggers will offer input and feedback on walking and cycling in Winnipeg, through surveys, a stakeholder advisory committee, small group discussions, a workshop, and an open house, and which will be supported by public communication materials.

More details about specific ways to get involved will be posted on this website regularly. Please check back often as we will continue to update this website.
