Calgary Transportation Plan (CTP)
The Calgary Transportation plan is a long-range plan that provides policy direction for how we will deliver transportation options to Calgarians for the next 60 years.
Our transportation system must provide realistic choices for transportation that are convenient, affordable and attractive. This includes walking, cycling, taking transit, carpooling and driving a single occupant vehicle.
By planning for the future, The City can:
- Continue to improve our service in existing, new and developing communities
- Help the movement of people and goods throughout the city
- Enhance Calgarians' safety on roads
- Strive to make walking, cycling and public transit a better option for more Calgarians
Contributing to the Plan It Calgary vision
The CTP and Municipal Development Plan (MDP) form an integrated land use and mobility plan that guides our current decision making. These decisions shape how our city grows and how people will live and travel in the future. Council approved both plans on September 28, 2009.
The plans work together to provide key strategic policy to guide growth, mobility and city building over a 60-year period.
Our city has grown and changed since these plans were developed and approved. We began reviewing them in 2019 to see what’s working well and contributing to the quality of life that many Calgarians enjoy. It identified what policies need to be updated or changed to make life better for Calgarians over the next 20 years.
Public engagement for the review has ended. Stakeholder feedback will be incorporated into updated versions of the MDP and CTP where appropriate. The updated versions of the MDP and CTP will then be presented to the SPC on Planning and Urban Development and Council for consideration in Fall 2020.
