Burlington is a suburban community at the western edge of the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area. Burlington is situated between Lake Ontario and the Niagara Escarpment.
The City of Burlington is preparing a new Transportation Master Plan that will be released in 2018. While the full plan has not been released (as of July 2017), Complete Streets feature prominently in preliminary materials. The plan aims to greatly increase the number of trips by walking, cycling and transit, and to treat all streets as Complete Streets, including rural roads.
