Transportation Master Plan

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Transporation Master Plan Update 

What is a Transportation Master Plan?


A Transportation Master Plan (TMP) is a long-term strategy to guide the planning, expansion and management of a multi-modal transportation system. A TMP provides strategies and policies that align with the County of Simcoe’s growth and support its vision for the future transportation system.  

The TMP Update will:  

  • ​Develop a forward-looking transportation plan for the County of Simcoe and expand the multi-modality of ​​​the transportation system including driving, transit, cycling, walking, and movement of commercial vehicles​
  • Identify appropriate infrastructure to support and manage growth and address the needs and priorities for both rural and urban communities
  • Develop complementary transportation solutions informed by supporting provincial and local policies including the Official Plan update
  • Provide recommendations on managing a multi-municipal transportation system, improving safety, and supporting the development of healthy communities
