Active Transportation Master Plan


The City of Markham has initiated the Active Transportation

Master Plan (ATMP) and we are looking for your feedback!


The ATMP is a long-term strategic plan to improve walking, cycling, and other modes of active transportation for everyone. The ATMP will identify a well-connected and safe active transportation network. Also, it will recommend infrastructure projects, policies and strategies with an action-oriented phasing plan.


Phase 2 of Public Consultation | Fall - Winter 2019 | Current

We have gathered comments from Phase 1 of Public Consultation, and conducted further analysis on the network. We have some ideas to share and want to get feedback from you.

Phase 1 of Public Consultation | Spring 2019 | Completed

A robust and open public consultation process is a key to this Study. A series of engagement efforts were implemented to get comments and feedback from the City, residents, businesses and different stakeholder group.


We invite you to browse through the website to learn more about this project. Don't forget to participate below and let us hear from you!
