Metrolinx is considering a bus rapid transit (BRT) corridor between Toronto and Waterdown.

The Crown agency is working to finalize an initial business case for rapid bus transit along a 40-kilometre stretch of Dundas Street, according to information update to councillors from Brian Hollingworth, Hamilton’s director of transportation planning and parking.

The corridor would run through five municipalities, from Kipling subway station in Toronto, to Mississauga, Oakville and Burlington, before hitting Hamilton.

The report estimates that by 2041 roughly six per cent of employment in the GTHA and eight per cent of the region’s total population will be along the corridor, and shows that the existing transit options don’t allow efficient movement, the update from Hollingworth adds.

Metrolinx’s report is expected to be complete by the end of the year or early next year.
