Kelowna On the Move
Transportation Master Plan: Pedestrians & Bikes
At the May 16, 2016 meeting, Council endorsed a new Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan for Kelowna.
The ultimate goal of this Plan is to create a balanced transportation network where walking and cycling are established as alternatives to driving to achieve a multitude of the 2030 Official Community Plan objectives. Long term goals include:
- Increase year-round walking and cycling so that within 20 years, 25 per cent of all trips less than five kms in length are made by walking and cycling.
- Improve pedestrian and cyclist safety so that the rate of collisions with motor vehicles is reduced by 50 per cent within 20 years.
By increasing our walking and cycling we improve the health of our community, reduce the number of cars on the road, free up parking spaces and reduce air pollution. Recreational opportunities will also be enhanced as we develop and promote expanded routes.
