Switching Gears Transportation Master Plan

Oakville's TMP, Switching Gears (pdf) looks at all modes of transportation including public transit, walking, cycling and ride-sharing along with strategic roadway improvements to ensure the safe, convenient and efficient movement of people and goods.

Launched in 2013, Switching Gears is the town's guiding document for developing practical, sustainable, long-term plans to guide the town's transportation system to meet the needs of its anticipated growth to 2031. It incorporates transportation, land use planning and financial strategy which respects the social, environmental and economic goals as defined in the Livable Oakville Plan, the Halton Region Official Plan and other provincial strategies. It also aligns with other key studies including the town's Active Transportation Master Plan and Halton's Transportation Plan - The Road to Change.

Oakville is growing and changing. Over the next few decades, the town expects to see increased traffic due to population and employment growth. To address this challenge, staff is looking for responsible and effective ways to handle the growing demand including finding a balance for strategic road improvements, with the need to provide a greater range of transportation choices to reduce the number of vehicles on the road.

The 2017 TMP Review assessed the transportation network improvements focusing on future transit targets to accommodate growth to 2031, and provided input into the town's upcoming Development Charge By-Law.
