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.

Ontario is Investing in London's Bus Rapid Transit System

Today, we have a 170 million reasons to be happy!

Ontario is investing $170 million to build our new Bus Rapid Transit System. Transportation Minister Steven Del Duca and MPP for London North Centre Deb Matthews were in London yesterday to announce that the province is funding the largest transit project in our city.

This funding brings us one step closer to making it easier for ALL Londoners to move around. London's Bus Rapid Transit is a major transit project that will connect people in our city with work, school, appointments, and activities faster, while increasing transit ridership and helping manage congestion. 

Building our London for tomorrow includes creating connections that move more people, more efficiently. It means transforming what we have today and growing it for the future.  It means not adding to congestion or letting our outdated transportation system continue to stagnate. It means providing the sustainable, safe, accessible, and reliable transportation that gives every Londoner a choice. The choice to arrive sooner. The choice to stay longer. The choice to use public transit one day and a personal vehicle the next. 

Transitioning to Bus Rapid Transit will connect our entire city, and give Londoners exciting, modern transportation options. This project is key to improving our transportation system as a whole, and building our neighbourhoods and our community for the future.

Next steps - We've gotten to this point over many years of consultation with the community, and we will continue to consult with Londoners as we move forward. Before shovels hit the ground, we are still studying how to best deliver Rapid Transit for London so it has the most positive impact. 

Now that we have this funding commitment, we will be able to start delivering on some early elements of Rapid Transit - like intelligent traffic signals, improvements to local intersections and maybe even a prototype stop - within the year. 

Learn more about this announcement.

Rapid Transit met with key stakeholder groups and advisory committees this week

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.
