Metrolinx seeking public input on enhanced BRT route connecting Hamilton to GTA
Published April 15, 2021 at 3:05 pm
Metrolinx is asking for the public’s input on a proposed route that would enhance transit options for Hamilton riders travelling to the Greater Toronto Area.
The Dundas Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project is expected to better-connect the transit corridor along 48 kilometres of Dundas Street — running through Toronto, Mississauga, Oakville, Burlington, and Hamilton from Highway 6 through to Kipling Station in Toronto.
The first public engagement session for the proposed new route is scheduled for Monday (Apr. 19).
“Metrolinx is looking for your ideas, suggestions, and feedback to help inform the technical work, environmental studies, and preliminary design work,” says Erika D’Urbano, a Metrolinx advisor. “The project also considers a more frequent and seamless rapid transit service that will enhance the connectivity between urban activity areas and regional transit hubs along the corridor.”
The enhancements include a mix of dedicated bus-only lanes, shared bus/HOV lanes, and bus priority measures along the route.
