Roads, Rides, & Residents

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Consultation has concluded

We want to view our road and transportation services through the eyes of our users.

Getting residents around Town as safely and quickly as possible is one of our number one priorities - and we know that our transportation network needs to be continuously maintained to make this happen. We also know the technical reasons and regulations for prioritizing the restoration of certain roads and sidewalks over others. What we don't know, is how this makes an impact on YOU, which is why we're turning outwards to our residents to capture their experiences.

Not only do we want you to have a safe, smooth ride around town - but we want to create walkable, connected communities that you enjoy and want to explore. Roads that you feel safe driving on all year, trails that you want to take your dog for a walk on, and sidewalks that connect you to key places in your neighbourhood.

Your meaningful feedback will help us to further identify, analyze, and invest in the transportation systems that improve your quality of life.

What's your story?
Do you have a favourite trail? Are there roads you want us to fix sooner? Do you wish your neighborhood had traffic calming initiatives? Leave us your experience below about how you get around town now and how you would like to in the future.

Pick a place!

Drag and drop a pin on the map below to tell us what you currently like and what you wish we could improve. Sidewalks, trails, transit stops, roads - you name it. We want to hear it.

  • How far is the distance to those places you need to reach regularly?
  • Are you able to take advantage of facilities and services near you?
  • Do you feel connected to your community?
  • Do you feel safe getting to your destinations?

    No access to public pools for rehabilitation.

    by MerryMickey, 8 months ago

    I was going to comment on the story that is already posted about transit and more sidewalks but neither of those would work for me, although I do agree with them. I have a problem with not being able to access any form of rehabilitation without being dependent on someone for a ride to the rec center and even then the walk from the door of the rec center to the change room and then to the pool is excruciatingly painful for me. Perhaps if I was able to get to the pool, on my scooter, so that I can... Continue reading

    The town needs more wheelchair accessible options when it comes to tourism, transportation, and businesses.

    7th Line Beach

    by Simcoeliving, 8 months ago

    This is a request to make the 7th Line Beach bigger. Since the town does not allow parking at the road end beach, why not move the barriers closer to the road just before the private driveway and make this beach more inviting to residents. The bottom of the 4th Line was improved years ago with the help of a community group I believe. Perhaps this could happen again?

    7th Line Improvement

    by Simcoeliving, 8 months ago

    I would like to add to the requests to improve the 7th Line. I enjoy riding my road bike around town, and while bicycle lanes are great, at the very least a smooth road would be appreciated. The 7th Line is absolutely the worst!!! It’s impossible to avoid the rough parts of the road and with a road bike it’s impossible to ride on the shoulder. Please add this road as a priority. With the 6th Line closed and the 8th Line under construction, this is the only road to conveniently use. If we want to be Active Innisfil, then... Continue reading

    Maple Road - just another 2-lane highway

    by Beanery, 9 months ago

    My mom lived on Maple Rd between the 5th & 6th Lines. At 80 years old, she stopped driving. No transit, no sidewalks and no Super Boxes to receive/send mail and the closest Post Office 4 km away. Terrible traffic and speeding on Maple Rd makes it very unsafe to walk/ride even with new bike lanes. Beautiful area but something to think about Town of Innisfil for seniors and young families.

    More sidewalks please!!!

    by Teapot, 9 months ago

    I live on 7th line and my two kids goes to Lake Simcoe PS. We are not eligible to have school bus because we have to live at least 1.5km away from school. Our house to School in 1.4km. But my kids cannot walk to school because there isn’t any side walk from St.Johns to Webster blvd. So I drive them to school everyday. I really wish there will be sidewalk here in the near future. Also, people still walk on road at night when there’s no street lights. I’m a night worker, I go to work at dark and... Continue reading

    Bring in Buses already!!

    by Navysailorswife, 9 months ago

    As a mom of 3 teens and one who is high functioning special needs we NEED at least ONE public transit bus in town to link us with the Barrie transit system. Minimum to get to the train station on Yonge st. Not all people drive, and not everyone can afford the ridiculous cab fares into Barrie. And I’m sorry but I do not feel safe sending my kids anywhere in an Uber. Don’t we teach kids to not get rides from strangers? Learning how to use public transit is a life skill everyone should know. My daughter can’t even... Continue reading

    I live on st. John's speedway. While I appreciate there may be practical issues with installing speed bumps (like impeding emergency services using the road to get to someone in need), there must be an alternative to the absolutely-nothing we are doing now. The turn at 7 and st. John's is a nightmare. This would be a great spot for a 4way stop.


    Additionally, I have tried, without success to get bylaw to enforce the no parking signs on the side of the road with the pedestrian walkway. I'm not sure why anybody thinks it is a paved shoulder, however... Continue reading
