The regional Municipality of Waterloo requested that the ERS 339 class look into the issues surrounding bicycling within Waterloo and specifically around the two universities. The existing Regional Cycling Policy Master Plan for the Regional Municipality of Waterloo is reviewed every five years with the next review taking place in 1999.
