Niagara Region is developing a long-term Transportation Master Plan. It is a 25 year vision for how we travel in and around Niagara, and how we can improve our transportation systems. It covers all modes of transportation, including the movement of goods.

Niagara’s new Transportation Master Plan will help the Region’s grow in a more sustainable way and recommend transportation improvements and policies that support economic prosperity, mobility and other goals.
