The Vision

The Douglas Street Busway is the first stage of the region rapid transit system. Starting with rapid bus service, and evolving to Light Rail Transit, the project will achieve the goals of the region and municipalities for more sustainable transportation.

  • Provincial Transit Plan
  • Regional Growth Strategy
  • Rapid Transit Network Development
  • Building the bus rapid transit network

The Plans

The most recent plans for the Douglas Street busway include two bus-only lanes, four general purpose travel lanes, two bike lanes, boulevards and sidewalks. Bus-only lanes are built so that in the future, Light Rail Transit can be provided in the same right-of-way. Stations are also planned to meet LRT standards. Sidewalks and boulevards along the project meet municipal requirements.
