Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Replacing Light Rail Transit (LRT) Spur Line

Ontario is moving forward with planning for a proposed 16 km Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) line that would connect the Hamilton waterfront to Hamilton International Airport, making it easier for people to travel across the city. (click image below to enlarge)

The 16 km BRT replaces a previously-proposed 2 km LRT spur, based on analysis and feedback received through public consultations in the fall. Together with the 11km LRT, which will have 14 stops along Main and King Streets, and feature new, modern light rail vehicles with service from McMaster University to Queenston Circle, these two projects will provide rapid, reliable and convenient transit to families and commuters in the Hamilton area.

This week Aidan began his term as Chair of the Hamilton LRT Implementation Committee.  He is looking forward to getting the project right and building greener, more accessible transit for the region.  He attended the BRT announcement on February 2 at 9am at the Hamilton Go Centre.
