Transportation Master Plan
Transportation is an essential part of everyday life, affecting our community’s health, environment, and economy. An efficient transportation network allows people and goods to safely move in and around the District and is essential for supporting a complete, connected community as we grow.
Mission Mobility 2050
The District of Mission is updating its Transportation Master Plan to shape the future of transportation in Mission and to respond to ongoing growth and development. Starting in December 2020, the District will take a 10-month process to create Mission Mobility 2050—a plan to address increasing pressures on our transportation system by making recommendations to improve all modes of transportation, including walking, cycling, transit, and motor vehicles.
