Connect Rupert: Transportation Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

In June 2022, the City of Prince Rupert launched the planning and public engagement process for Connect Rupert. Connect Rupert is name of the Transportation Plan that the City is developing. Connect Rupert will provide an opportunity for the City to take stock of all forms of transportation in Prince Rupert today, plan for the future, and strategically guide its growth today and over the long-term.

The plan will establish a strategic vision that will guide the City’s transportation and land use decisions as well as public investments over the next 5-10 years and beyond. It will help guide the City towards its vision of being a world-class port city that is vibrant, resilient, and sustainable. As a port city that is continuing to grow in its role in importing and exporting goods for the rest of the country, the plan will need to balance both the city’s commercial and personal transportation needs.

The plan is a crucial step towards creating a transportation network that serves community members of all ages and abilities and will support the bold visions in recent and existing initiatives, including the recently adopted Official Community Plan and the 2030 Vision document.

The Transportation Plan will be developed through a five-phase process over 12 months. There will be a variety of opportunities for the community members to participate in the planning process and provide input. Stay connected and keep up-to-date with this exciting project!

At present, the project is at the "Looking Forward" phase. The following documents, produced as part of the "Current Context" phase, can be found under the "Documents" section on this page:
