Truck Route Reboot Petition

The Hamilton Truck Route Master Plan (TRMP) Review is underway. TRMP is a comprehensive review and update of the 2010 TRMP and current truck route network. Now is your chance to tell Hamilton City Council,

"No more Industrial Trucks shortcutting through our neighbourhoods and the urban centre."

Truck Route Reboot Hamilton: Background

The Truck Route Reboot Collaborative (since 2019) represents a growing group of individuals, small businesses, and organizations. It emerged out of Friendly Streets Hamilton's efforts to create safer, more vibrant streets for pedestrians and cyclists traveling through their neighborhoods.
We need local delivery trucks in our neighbourhoods, but massive industrial trucks with no local destination create serious safety concerns when they cut through residential areas. Unfortunately, this is currently perfectly legal under Hamilton’s permissive truck route system. Let’s tell the city that it is time for them to stop industrial trucks from shortcutting through our urban neighbourhoods. Other major cities in Ontario don’t allow gigantic industrial trucks to rumble through residential neighbourhoods and past elementary schools. Neither should we. Our families deserve safe, livable streets and clean air. It’s time for a truck route reboot! Please sign the petition and share with your networks.
