News release

The Town of Milton and its partners are preparing to review and update two important plans that will shape the movement of people and goods for years to come.

The Transportation Master Plan Update will be the guide that combines all modes of transportation and identifies strategic improvements for each mode, to achieve a multi-modal future for the Town.

The Milton Transit Five-Year Service Plan will focus on the review of transit services and create recommendations for transit as one part of the Town's larger transportation network.

Each project has a Let’s Talk Milton engagement page with background information, a draft timeline, and a way to subscribe to updates.

Both projects will launch public engagement on June 22. This will include a shared Public Engagement Session at Sherwood Community Centre (5:30 to 8 p.m. June 22).

Residents can get to and from the engagement event using Milton Transit OnDemand. This is available within the Milton core area, from 5 to 9 p.m. on June 22. Booking can be done up to three days in advance. Regular Milton Transit Fares apply.

About the Transportation Master Plan Update

In 2018, the Town of Milton developed a Transportation Master Plan to guide investment in all modes of transportation to accommodate the travel needs expected due to the forecasted significant population and economic growth. In March 2023, the Town of Milton retained WSP to prepare the Transportation Master Plan Update.

The TMP update intends to align transportation policy with Milton’s growth plan and priorities. It will also reflect recent policy directions from the Province of Ontario, which focuses Milton’s future growth on intensification in the built boundary and developing complete communities through Secondary Plan Areas.

About the Milton Transit Five-Year Service Plan

Milton Transit has partnered with Arcadis Professional Services (Canada) Inc. to develop this plan, which reviews current transit services and identifies potential changes in service delivery methods, service levels and ways to improve efficiency, effectiveness and ridership uptake.

Covering 2024-2029, it will also update the existing transit plan, and recommend short-, medium- and long-term sustainable transit requirements in growth areas, including: Boyne, Derry Green, Britannia, Agerton/Trafalgar, the Major Transit Station Area and Milton Education Village.

As Milton's population and employment continue to grow, effectively managing transportation demand will help attract sound community investment and achieve the corporate vision.
