Transportation Master Plan

Connecting_Cochrane_logo colour
The draft Connecting Cochrane plan includes illustrations of future transportation networks for pedestrians, cycling, vehicles and transit.

In particular, the draft plan illustrates the original transit analysis approved by Town Council in March 2013. When Council considers future transit in Cochrane, growth patterns within all neighbourhoods will be studied. Details for future neighbourhood servicing for transit are still to be determined.

Workshop 1: June 24, 2014
The Town of Cochrane held two public workshops on June 24 to confirm what works and what challenges are faced in the network today, to understand the goals and vision of the plan and to work together to explore possibilities and aspirations for the future.

June 24 presentation materials:

  • The Town recognizes the importance of managing its transportation system in response to challenges of growth and competing local and regional transportation demands.
  • A successful plan must include a balanced approach to key modes of travel: driving (cars and trucks), riding public transit, cycling and walking/running.
  • Connecting Cochrane will guide the development of the transportation system in a way that reflects the community vision and goals, and more importantly, is integrated with the Town’s existing overarching policy and planning documents.
  • We believe that a truly multi-modal transportation system must provide a set of networks and classifications for public transit, for bicycles and other non-motorized wheeled vehicles, and for pedestrians. The extent to which the modes are integrated and trade-offs are made will be shaped entirely by the goals and objectives of the plan and the extent of change that stakeholders are prepared to accept.
  • Cochrane requires made-in-Cochrane creative solutions; consider possibilities beyond basic infrastructure requirements
