Integrated Transportation Master Plan

The Town of Ajax is currently in the process of updating the Integrated Transportation Master Plan. The process started in 2017 and is expected to be completed in late 2018.

About this project

Ajax is undertaking an update to two (2) master plans, the Transportation Master Plan and the Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan. Known as the Integrated Transportation Master Plan (ITMP), the goal of the study is to establish a holistic and integrated approach to transportation planning, design and implementation throughout the Town.

Transportation Master Plan:

  • To update the existing transportation master plan to reflect new priorities, emerging trends, growth and development within the Town of Ajax.

Pedestrian and Bike Master Plan:

  • To update the 2010 Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan to identify infrastructure priorities that reflect a cultural shift towards walking, cycling and healthy community development.

Transportation Demand Management

Transportation Demand Management (TDM) initiatives promote and facilitate the use of sustainable modes of transportation such as walk, cycling, transit, carpooling and telecommuting.

What are the benefits of Transportation Demand Management

  • Reduced traffic congestion
  • Reduced demand on road infrastructure
  • Improved air quality
  • Reduced greenhouse gas emissions
  • More efficient and enjoyable commutes
  • Improved public health from an active lifestyle

Town of Ajax Transportation Demand Management Plan

As part of our commitment to developing a multi-modal transportation network in Ajax and promoting sustainable transportation, the Town of Ajax has a new Transportation Demand Management Plan.

Transportation Demand Management is a series of community based initiatives designed to encourage residents and people who work in the Town to use sustainable modes of transportation more often. The TDM Plan provides a “blueprint” for change, outlining the policies, programs and infrastructure investments required to realize a transportation system that relies less on the automobile.

The successful implementation of this strategy will also contribute to improved air quality, reduced greenhouse gas emissions, diminished parking demand, improved public health and a better quality of live for all who live, work and play in Ajax.

The Transportation Demand Management Toolkit

The Transportation Demand Management “Toolkit” includes: Transit, Walking, Cycling, Carpooling and Telecommuting. TDM initiatives in Ajax will encourage Ajax residents to consider using one or all five “tools” for their daily transportation needs. TDM initiatives will help the Ajax community reduce re-more, re-time and re-route single occupancy trips.

  • Reduce
  • Remode
  • Retime
