  • Frequent service with a bus ideally every 5 minutes or less during peak hours
  • Smart signals will adapt to support smoother traffic flow for all commutes – on buses, in personal vehicles, and on bicycles
  • Better connections to key transit hubs and employment centres
  • Reliable service with buses separated from general traffic in most areas, and greater stop spacing to allow for fast, efficient, and reliable service
  • Potential enhanced amenities such as service maps, next bus information, fare collection, garbage bins, wayfinding information and weather protection
