Pedestrian Strategy Final Report

The Transportation Department developed a city-wide Pedestrian Strategy for reducing pedestrian casualties and improving walking in Calgary. The strategy was developed as a result of comprehensive consultation and review and is now ready to move into implementation. The Committee directed Administration to bring back this report no later than November, 2016 with a report on public consultation on the topic of speed reduction on residential roads, to assess the level of public support or opposition on that action.

Program 566 – Routeahead Rapid Transit Corridors Update

RouteAhead Rapid Transit Corridors (capital budget Program 566) is a series of Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) projects stretching over 70km across all four quadrants of the city. The Program is projected to carry over 30,000 average weekday passengers and has been designed to provide more frequent, reliable and fast transit service than traditional bus service in a more cost effective approach to mass transit projects such as Light Rail Transit (LRT). The BRT Program is the first step in developing an enhanced grid of primary transit service which supplements the existing LRT network. The Committee referred this item and directed Administration to return to Council no later than July, 2016 through the Committee Meeting on Transportation and Transit, with a report that includes a written response to the 60 questions received through citizen presentations from the April 20 meeting.
