Queen St Hwy 7 BRT

Project overview

The Queen Street-Highway 7 Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project is a proposed rapid transit line in the cities of Brampton and Vaughan. The project's study area covers a 24-kilometre corridor along Queen Street and Highway 7, which would create a crucial east-to-west transit spine connecting the northwest and northcentral sections of the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA).

The BRT system would include key connections to transit hubs such as the Downtown Brampton Transit Hub and Vaughan Metropolitan Centre, offering access to other regional networks such as GO Transit and TTC Line 1. It would also connect riders to the future Toronto-York Spadina Subway Extension (TYSSE).
