Update on Transit Project Assessment Process (TPAP) pause
On Oct. 1 the BRT team announced its decision to pause the formal Transit Project Assessment Process (TPAP) to take time to strengthen our heritage strategy.
Through discussions with Ontario’s Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport, we have developed a detailed plan for providing more comprehensive information on potential heritage impacts. We presented this plan to the London Advisory Committee on Heritage (LACH) on Wednesday, Oct. 10, 2018. Read more
Notice of Issue for London’s Bus Rapid Transit
London’s Bus Rapid Transit Project is currently following the Transit Project Assessment Process (TPAP) as prescribed in Ontario Regulation 231/08.
The City is of the opinion that we can provide more comprehensive information about the potential impacts on heritage, which is a Matter of Provincial Importance, as well as more fully describe our strategy for managing and mitigating these impacts.
Under subsection 10(1) of Ontario Regulation 231/08, if a notice of issue is given, the 120-day TPAP consultation period stops running and will resume when the above-noted issue has been addressed and a notice of resumption has been provided. Read more

Where are we in the project?
On June 7, the BRT project entered into a formal 120-day period of public consultation, which is required by the province in large-scale transit projects. Read the full Notice of Commencement Transit Project Assessment Process Meetings - London's Bus Rapid Transit System.
Draft Environmental Project Report for BRT
The Draft Environmental Project Report (EPR) highlights the recommended designs for the approved BRT network, which were shared with the public at recent Open House events in February and March. The report includes all of the supporting studies and background materials - from traffic modeling and records of public consultation to archaeological and environmental studies.

Transforming the Way London Moves
London is currently Canada's largest city without a rapid transit system, but investing in BRT today will ensure we can continue to prosper alongside other world-class cities for generations to come.
BRT is just one part of the City of London's efforts to enhance mobility for all Londoners in coming years.

BRT Features and Benefits
Moving thousands more transit riders in dedicated lanes, BRT will reduce congestion and boost existing transit service, making it easier for all Londoners to get around - whether they drive, cycle or take the bus. Our state-of-the-art BRT system will spark exciting new development opportunities and jobs, attracting talent, connecting our city and revitalizing our neighbourhoods.
What BRT Means for London
Within the next two decades, London will grow by 84,000 people. If we don't plan for this growth today, we will face more congestion on our roads, greater urban sprawl, and increased expense to support our growing city.
