Regina has had a plan in the works since 2001 — and before — to have a functional Transportation Master Plan which serves all residents of the city.
The issue – which is often discussed formally and informally — was approved at city council last week.
Mayor Michael Fougere says the city needs a plan that looks at all modes of travel and considers them all.
“So the plan tells us where we are going to go, and how we are going to get there,” said Fougere. “How quickly we get there is another issue. It’s subject to budget approval. But we want to see it. It’s vibrant and inclusive and provides the best transportation to get around — be it walking, bike, bus or car.”

According to Fougere, If everything from the transportation master plan is implemented in the next 25 years, motorists, cyclists and pedestrians could have new bus routes, bike lanes and multi-use pathways.
The new transportation master plan replaces the previous one that was completed in 1991 and updated in 2001.
