Picture of a couple cycling on Guelph trailsThe Active Transportation Network Study includes the development of design guidelines and a feasibility study. Together, these pieces will inform future upgrades of the City’s network of trails to improve connectivity for active forms of transportation such as walking, running, cycling and inline skating. Design guidelines will consider what upgrades would look like in different environments such as woodlands, wetlands, city parks and road boulevards.

The feasibility study will determine which trails are best suited for upgrades as well as the estimated construction and maintenance costs of changes recommended by the design guidelines.
