The need for Dundas Bus Rapid Transit
Previous municipal planning studies and the Metrolinx Initial Business Case confirmed the need for improved bus transit infrastructure along Dundas Street. Metrolinx is now advancing plans for the Dundas Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridor. 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, will operate in bus lanes or in a dedicated right-of-way, separate from other traffic, allowing faster and more reliable transit connections.
The Dundas BRT is part of a bigger picture for an integrated, multi-modal regional transportation system that will serve the needs of residents, businesses and institutions. It supports Ontario’s Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe, 2017, which sets out a broad vision for where and how our region will grow and identifies policies on transportation planning in the GTHA.
