Another step forward for London’s bus rapid transit plans, as city staff shared the environmental project report which can be found
The draft environmental project report highlights the recommended designs for the network, background materials and the supporting studies.
London City Council will discuss this at our meeting next week, after previously approving the routes and engaging in extensive public consultation.
This is one of the final steps before we can formally submit for the federal government’s recently announced $204-million funding allocation for transit projects in London under the Public Transit Infrastructure Stream.
I’d like to thank our provincial partners for recognizing that investments in transit are critical. As you know, we’ve already secured $170-million in funding for this business case from the province.
As we move through the process, there will be even further opportunities for the public to help shape the BRT designs along the dedicated routes.
Last week, we launched Clean and Green. A huge thank you to so many of you who have already taken part in the 20 Minute Makeover challenge. I encourage all Londoners to do their part this spring to help make London the greenest community it can be.
