Revitalization projects

The Revitalizing Caledon Streets (RCS) program is about finding better ways to include all modes of transportation on our streets safely. The program is based on a “complete streets” approach, where road design takes into account multiple factors including existing land use, the surrounding landscape, and the needs of everyone using the road.

Columbia Way Environmental Assessment

The Town of Caledon has initiated a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) for Columbia Way between Highway 50 and Caledon King Townline to improve traffic conditions and enhance the safety of all road users.

Transit Feasibility Study

We conducted a Transit Feasibility Study to find the costs and benefits of having a public transit service.

The study developed and then was guided by a set of Vision, Goals, and Objectives that are consistent with the Town's wider plans.

The study also examined the existing and projected demographics and travel patterns within Caledon and reviewed transit provision in similar municipalities. 

The Study comprised extensive engagement with stakeholders and the general public at key points in the study, including telephone, online surveys as well as public information centres (PICs). Contact us to review the study.

Caledon Transportation Needs Study Updates (CATSU)

The Caledon Transportation Needs Study Updates assessed and identified the potential transportation improvements for future transportation demand.
