- Dundas BRT
Metrolinx is continuing to advance planning for the Dundas Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridor, based on key findings in the Dundas Connects Master Plan and the Metrolinx Initial Business Case (IBC). The purpose of the Dundas BRT project is to evaluate the proposed transit corridor along a 48 kilometre stretch of Dundas Street from Highway 6 in the City of Hamilton through to the Kipling Transit Hub in the City of Toronto, linking Etobicoke and Mississauga City Centres. More than 20 kilometres, of the 48-kilometre BRT, would operate in bus lanes or in a dedicated right-of-way, separate from other traffic, allowing faster and more reliable transit connections.
Previous municipal planning studies and the Metrolinx IBC confirmed the need for improved bus transit infrastructure along Dundas Street. Metrolinx is now advancing plans for the Dundas BRT corridor.

Dundas BRT Benefits
Faster, more reliable
Service expansion on Dundas would allow for more frequent and reliable service reducing travel times and helping to alleviate congestion.
Reduce greenhouse gas
Sustainable travel is encouraged with increased access to reliable and convenient public transit. Fewer vehicles means less congestion and pollution.
Low inter-municipal travel demand equals opportunity for improved bus rapid transit service along corridor to link urban centres and key destinations.
Invest for growth
Improved transit services along corridor potentially supports population and employment growth, local businesses and development of mobility hubs.
