Pedestrian and Cycling Planning and Design Guidelines

The York Region Pedestrian and Cycling Planning and Design Guidelines provides a concise and easy to use manual for planning and design of active transportation facilities. The guidelines are an update to the 2008 Planning and Design Guidelines developed as a part of the Pedestrian and Cycling Master Plan; however it includes updates on cycling facility types, emerging design treatments for intersections and better integration with other York Region planning and design initiatives. In particular, these guidelines directly support the work of York Region’s Great Streets context sensitive design manual and policy directions stemming from the recently updated Transportation Master Plan.

Developing high quality active transportation facilities in York Region presents a unique set of challenges including:

  • Variety of street typologies that often require transition zones as well as demand to accommodate goods movements as part of the regional mandate
  • Must be balanced with the desire for pedestrian oriented design specifically through elements such as turning radii, lane widths, etc.
  • Balancing urban design elements including a  desire for sustainable streets and streetscaping requirements with space for pedestrians and cyclists in regional/urban centres
