Get Moving with TransPort Moody


TransPort Moody

The City of Port Moody is updating its 2005 Master Transportation Plan (MTP) to improve how community members and visitors travel in and though our city over the next 25 years. Branded, TransPort Moody, the new MTP will be a detailed plan that looks at road networks, and that considers feedback the City received during Official Community Plan (OCP) consultations.

Acting Mayor Meghan Lahti says Port Moody is growing, and as this trend continues, the City’s existing transportation network will face significant pressure. “As part of the process for updating Port Moody’s Master Transportation Plan, we will be using a regional transportation model to help us understand how the decisions we make today will impact the community over the next 25 years.”

The update also supports Moving People, one of the seven strategic priorities in the recently released Council Strategic Plan. Acting Mayor Lahti says “TransPort Moody is in line with the outcomes Council identified – to enhance the City’s transportation planning and to create effective connections between our neighbourhoods.”

The City is inviting residents to get involved in the process and to help make TransPort Moody a plan that reflects the desires of the community while meeting Port Moody’s overall transportation needs. Residents can choose from a variety of ways to share their thoughts including surveys, community meetings and social media conversations. There will also be opportunities for stakeholders to stop by information booths at community events, such as Canada Day at Rocky Point Park on July 1, 2015.

In a 2014 Ipsos Reid Survey, 40% of Port Moody residents named transportation as the most important issue facing the community. TransPort Moody is expected to keep pace with the anticipated transportation conditions in Port Moody as they grow and change, while improving quality of life and mobility for residents.
