This site describes a vision for the development of a regional rapid transit network. Transit services will be enhanced into
Bus Rapid Transit services on three key corridors serving the Western Communities and the Saanich Peninsula and University of Victoria which will become the backbone of the transit system.
The Capital Regional District's Regional Growth and Travel Choices strategies support public transit as an essential piece of the long-term transportation strategy. BC Transit's Rapid Transit Development Plan describes how today's transit services will evolve into Rapid Bus service.
The Douglas Street Busway is the first stage of the region's rapid transit

on further extensions of bus lanes is a key component to
achieve the environmental goals of the Provincial Transit
