Our borough’s local travel plan

Our borough’s local travel plan

Following a major citizen participation process spread over several years, the borough of Villeray–Saint-Michel–Parc-Extension has drafted in 2018 its first Local Travel Plan, which identifies the orientations in terms of mobility in the territory.

In accordance with the citizen recommendations issued during the public participation process, the local travel plan for the borough of Villeray–Saint-Michel–Parc-Extension promotes mobility, including active, collective and alternative modes of transportation, in its way of thinking about public space.

This planning tool offers 39 actions at the heart of citizens’ concerns. These actions are thought out to make the borough a friendly and safe place for its population, with a view to sustainable development.

The Local Travel Plan was developed following an extensive consultation process initiated in 2015. Citizens, business owners and community groups thus contributed to its creation by participating in the various activities that took place , including kiosks held in the four districts of the borough, an online survey on the needs and issues related to local transportation, as well as a public forum.

The PLD (Plan de transport de la Ville de Montréal), is a planning tool that locally implements the directions of the City of Montreal’s Transportation Plan, developed in 2008, one of the objectives of which is to reduce dependence on the automobile by promoting public and active modes of transportation. The PLD covers all modes of urban transport (car, walking, cycling and public transport). It aims to improve the quality of life of residents and to facilitate and secure their mobility.

By implementing its PLD, the Borough wishes to ensure travel safety, promote the tranquility of residential neighborhoods, design developments in favor of active modes, open up neighborhoods and encourage mobility within the borough and promote alternatives to auto-solo and sustainable modes of transport.
