Mobility Master Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Community consultation is now underway for the Mobility Master Plan - a plan that will determine how London prioritizes transportation and mobility infrastructure, programs and policies for the next 25 years. To start, we want to learn about what it's like for you to move around the City - what are your choices, your challenges and what would make your trips better.

Developing the Mobility Master Plan will take approximately two years as we explore how we can improve our streets, sidewalks, cycling infrastructure, transit routes and paths - also known as our ‘mobility network’ - for current and future generations.

What is Mobility?

Transportation is defined as the act of moving people or goods. Mobility offers a more holistic perspective, which includes options for getting around and having access to everyday needs like school, work, the grocery store, parks or health care. Our mobility system is directly linked to quality of life and creating places and spaces that function more effectively and safely for everyone. The Mobility Master Plan is working towards a future where everyone has safe, healthy, affordable and accessible mobility options to get where they need to go.

A vision statement and five guiding principles have been proposed for the Mobility Master Plan. The Vision and Guiding Principles are not yet final but, after receiving community input, will inform how we make decisions and evaluate options for the future.

Draft Vision

"By 2050, Londoners of all identities, abilities and means will have viable mobility options to allow them to move throughout the city safely and efficiently. The movement of people and goods will be environmentally sustainable, affordable, and supportive of economic growth and development."

Draft Guiding Principles

  • Environmentally sustainable: Take bold action to address climate change and design and move in ways that protect and enhance the natural environment.
  • Financially sustainable: Ensure mobility and its infrastructure is affordable for current and future generations.
  • Equitable: Recognize diverse mobility needs and embed equity into decision making to enable everyone to move through the city.
  • Healthy and safe: Promote and protect the physical, mental and social wellbeing of all and encourage active living.
  • Integrated, connected and efficient: Strengthen community and the economy with better access to people, places, goods and services as London grows.

Why Are We Doing This Now?

The City is entering a new era of transportation planning! London is the fastest growing city in Ontario with significant transportation and mobility improvements already underway. This includes the construction of rapid transit infrastructure, intelligent traffic signals, investing $40 million in active transportation infrastructure and investigating new modes of transportation like e-bikes and programs like bikeshare. London Municipal Council has also approved a Climate Emergency Action Plan that includes a variety of short-term and longer-term actions and milestone targets which will have a direct impact on the way we plan our future mobility system.

How to Participate

This spring, City staff will be visiting London neighbourhoods, conducting interviews, and participating in focus groups to gain deeper insights into the community’s mobility needs, challenges and ideas for future solutions. Londoners interested in contributing their input to the Mobility Master Plan are encouraged to share information about their personal mobility experiences by completing the Feedback Form.

Feedback received will help staff refine the proposed Guiding Principles for the plan and identify key issues and opportunities to be explored.

Translation Requests

Project communications will be made available in French, Arabic, Spanish, Mandarin, Polish, Korean. Our translation list is not exhaustive and the City is happy to accommodate translation requests throughout the process. Residents may contact the project team directly via email (mmp@london.ca) or by phone at 519-661-4580 to make a request or share experiences with the project team directly.
