Active Transportation Plan Scan for the Clean Air Council

Source: Vancouver’s Transportation Story: Our journey towards complete streets (Dobrovolny, 2013)

Since 2001, the Clean Air Council (CAC), a network of 27 municipalities and health units from across the Greater Toronto, Hamilton and Southern Ontario area have been working collaboratively on the development and implementation of clean air and climate change mitigation and adaptation actions. One of the priority actions in the CAC’s 2015-2018 Inter-Governmental Declaration on Clean Air & Climate Change is to monitor and report on the progress of active transportation (AT) plans across CAC member municipalities.

The Active Transportation Plan Scan for the Clean Air Council features a categorized scan of the adopted AT plans within all 27 CAC member municipalities, as well as eight additional selected Canadian municipalities (e.g. Ottawa, Montreal, Vancouver), and regional (Metrolinx) and provincial (Ministry of Transportation) plans. The majority (74%) of the CAC member municipalities have either an AT or bicycle plan. Of those that do not, one is under development (Halton), and three (Aurora, Brampton, Caledon) have trails master plans which are primarily for recreation, not transportation.

The AT scan was conducted between May 2015 and November 2015, consisting of a comprehensive search for adopted active transportation plans within the CAC member municipalities and other selected jurisdictions. Documents included in the scan were AT plans, bicycle plans, pedestrian plans, recreational trails plans, as well as the AT sections of Transportation Master Plans. The plans were then analyzed and the information categorized, specifically in relation to the following:

The scan focused on targets because they provide specific and achievable performance levels that can be monitored and benchmarked with other jurisdictions. This is an area for improvement for most Canadian AT plans. Of the 36 jurisdictions included in the scan, 26 have AT plans and the majority (78%) of these plans include at least one target type, typically AT infrastructure targets. However, only four jurisdictions (East Gwillimbury, Guelph, Oakville, Richmond Hill) included all four of the target types in their plans.

The results are displayed in two charts below. The first chart provides an overview of the plans, while the second provides more detailed information.
