2040 Transportation Master Plan: Our Kelowna as We Move

Engagement conclusion can be found at the bottom of this page.

Kelowna’s draft 2040 Transportation Master Plan (TMP) sets the direction for a vibrant city where people and places are conveniently connected by diverse transportation options. It is a long-term plan for transportation improvements that will help keep Kelowna moving, now and into the future.

The draft 2040 TMP recognizes that Kelowna is growing, our climate is changing, and our transportation needs are evolving. It will help us reduce the growth of carbon emissions (that contribute to extreme heat, fires, and floods), accommodate more trips while reducing our car-dependence, and maintain and protect the Kelowna lifestyle we all value.

The plan has set targets for 2040 that we can all work together to achieve. These include:

  • doubling transit ridership,
  • quadrupling the number of trips made by bicycle, and
  • reducing the average distance each person drives by 20 per cent.

These targets are ambitious, yet achievable with the actions proposed in the plan.

Conclusion 

The final engagement report can be found in the documents section on the right of this page titled "2040 TMP Engagement Report - 2021". The report outlines key themes, survey responses, and more. 

Through this final phase of public engagement, it remains clear that the residents are interested and invested in the way we move around. Residents want to see us work to make sure that it’s safe and easy for people of all ages, incomes and abilities to get to where they need to go. 

As we work to deliver on the TMP goals, we will bring our Imagine Kelowna vision to life taking action on climate change and reducing our carbon emissions, building healthy neighbourhoods, reducing car dependency, embracing diverse transportation options, and making equitable investments in our city’s transportation future. In doing so, Kelowna will be a more connected community.
