Throughout this week the Rapid Transit Team met with various Stakeholder Groups to hear their ideas, questions and concerns.
During our Community Stakeholder Group meeting, there were representatives from Brescia University College, CF Masonville Place, Citi Plaza, Fanshawe College, Huron University College, Kings University College, London Health Sciences Centre, St. Joseph's Health Care London, Thames Valley District School Board, Western University, and White Oaks Mall. This was followed by additional one-on-one meetings with Citi Plaza, Emergency Services, CF Masonville Place, White Oaks Mall, Technical Agencies, and Fanshawe College.
We held a design charrette (workshop) with Western University in which we focused on design concepts for the campus area.
In addition, we met with a number of key Municipal Advisory Committees to help us shape the concept alternatives for the approved RT corridors, including the Cycling Advisory Committee; Diversity, Inclusion and Anti-Oppression Advisory Committee, London Advisory Committee on Heritage, Transportation Advisory Committee, and Trees and Forests Advisory Committee.
- Heritage workshop with London Advisory Committee on Heritage (LACH) and other heritage stakeholders
- Meetings with other Municipal Advisory Committees
- Public Station and Streetscape Design Charrette
We will be sharing some of the questions and great ideas that came out of these discussions in our next Shift Newsletter. Make sure to sign up to receive the next issue, and follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram at @ShiftLdnOnt.

The formal 45-day Public Review Period for the Rapid Transit Master Plan ended on September 18, 2017; however, there will be more opportunities for you to provide input as we enter the next phase of the project.
Phases 3 and 4 of the Environmental Assessment (EA) include the development of alternative design concepts, and the evaluation of design alternatives and draft Environmental Project Report (EPR). Phase 3 will focus on Pre-planning and Consultation activities for Phase 4: Transit Project Assessment Process (TPAP).
Throughout Phase 3, Shift will continue to develop communications and consultation initiatives to work with the public and stakeholders to identify and evaluate design alternatives for the approved corridors, and develop a preliminary engineering design. Phase 4 is expected to begin March 2018.

At its meeting on July 25, 2017, City Council approved the Rapid Transit Master Plan and Updated Business Case.
The Master Plan addresses Phase 1 and 2 of the Environmental Assessment process and concludes with a Public Review Period to provide Londoners an opportunity to comment on the Bus Rapid Transit Network. Learn more about the next stage of the study process at shiftlondon.ca/study_process.
The 45-day Public Review Period for the Rapid Transit Master Plan is open from August 3 to September 18, 2017.
Check out the complete Rapid Transit Master Plan under Shift Resources. Hard Copies are available at City Hall, the LTC downtown office and London Public Library branches citywide.
We want your feedback. Comments collected during the public review period will inform the project moving forward through next phase of the study. What questions do you feel we can answer in more detail going forward?
Your input will help guide the preliminary engineering design to deliver the best Rapid Transit Network for London.

On May 16th 2017, Council approved the revised Bus Rapid Transit Network. With Council’s approval of the corridors, the Shift project team has completed the Rapid Transit Master Plan for approval and initiation of the Public Review period. Check out the approved Bus Rapid Transit corridors.
- Approval of Rapid Transit Master Plan Documents;
- Initiation of the Public Review Period;
- Progressing Provincial and Federal funding submissions; and
- Approval of an updated Rapid Transit Budget.
SPPC starts at 4pm Monday. As always, attend or tune in live at www.london.ca.
The full Rapid Transit Master Plan report and all appendices are available for review under the Shift Resources Tab.
The Rapid Transit Master Plan addresses Phase 1 and 2 of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Process and with Council Approval of the Master Plan, the EA process will continue following the Transit Project Assessment Process (TPAP).
By signing up to get involved, you'll receive updates from us on the progress of the Shift initiative. Through e-mail, we'll send out newsletters, community consultation locations & dates and, from time to time, surveys for you to tell us your opinion. We ask for your address only so we can have a sense of whether we're involving people across our entire city.
Comments and information received will be considered in the Rapid Transit corridors analysis and will be kept on file for use during the study. Information is being gathered to assist the City of London in meeting the requirements of the Environmental Assessment Act.
Under the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, all personal information, such as name, address, telephone number and property location included in all submissions, will be kept confidential. Only comments will become part of the public record files for this project. Questions about this collection should be addressed to Edward Soldo, Director of Roads & Transportation, at 300 Dufferin Ave., London, ON, N6A 4L9. Tel: 519-661-2500 ext. 4936.
