University District is designed around four main transportation options: walking, cycling, driving and public transit. The transportation network will prioritize pedestrian traffic since cyclists, transit users and drivers are all pedestrians at some point in their journey. Pedestrian focused pathways and sidewalks will also create a community where foot traffic comes first.
The district will also feature bike networks to accommodate commuters and recreational cyclists. A new and enhanced street grid will also include multiple connection options to facilitate both pedestrians and vehicles while also offering quick and easy access points to the city's existing transit network.
With 12 kilometres of pathways throughout University District, the community will allow pedestrians and cyclists alike to travel and connect with the natural beauty of the area. A two-way pathway system will also create an optimal balance for transportation and leisure uses, offering a truly connected and complete urban community.
