London is Canada’s largest urban centre without a modern rapid transit system. That’s about to change, with a vision nearly a decade in the making.
Thriving cities worldwide have modern rapid transit. Moving more people, more efficiently, means more Londoners getting to and from work easily, more customers at local businesses, more fans getting to the game on time. It means more culture lovers supporting the arts more often, and more people venturing out to experience ‐ and invest in ‐ everything London has to offer. It means a better transit system that is accessible for everyone.
With BRT corridors acting as the spine of the transit system, plus a 35 per cent increase in transit service hours system-wide, there are benefits for all bus riders.
But all Londoners – including those who drive – will have an enhanced experience, thanks to the project’s investments in smart traffic signals, road widening and streetscape improvements, plus dedicated bus lanes that help keep traffic moving smoothly.
All that, and cleaner air for the next generation of families ‐ to the tune of 230,000 tonnes less greenhouse gas by 2050.
With BRT, London can capitalize on infrastructure investments and build a best‐in‐class transportation system to carry us ‐ and our economy ‐ into the future.
