Rapid Transit Open House

View the latest plans for how Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) may fit within our neighbourhoods!

 

Londoners have another chance to see how the City's plans for Bus Rapid Transit are moving forward during five Open House events between Feb. 28 and March 3. 

These events are opportunities to see detailed maps and renderings of the Project Team's recommended preliminary designs for the BRT network. The team developed these recommendations in consultation with the public and will be bringing them forward to Council in Spring 2018. 

The family-friendly Open Houses will begin as a drop-in format, followed by a presentation and question period. All Open House materials will be posted on the website after 11 a.m. on Feb. 28. For questions and comments, email us at shift@london.ca.

  • This (BRT) is an asinine idea and a colossal waste of taxpayer money. A growing city and growing population will not ever be well-served by pouring funds into obsolete systems. It is incredible that the city leaders think putting more buses on the road will solve transportation limitations. We need a high speed LRT (light rail transit) type of system with terminals in all major business, industrial and residential districts. Bus routes could run from the terminals to extend transit services to all areas of the city. Simply increasing bus services is going backwards when we need progressive ideas that will provide the city’s future needs.
  • No intelligence! You’re about to waste $500,000,000 on a dying industry. Cabbies were first. Buses are next. Do you not realize silicon valleys disruptive and all consuming agenda? A logical evolution of Uber is to take on multiple riders heading in similar directions (goodbye LTC). Wake up.
