How is Durham Region implementing noise barriers along those residential properties directly located along Kingston Road (west of Liverpool Rd., east of Walnut Lane, Pickering)? Currently there are none.

Currently, there are GO dedicated buses that run between Scarborough Centre to Durham. There are GO trains and the Durham Pulse bus that also cover this route. Those are THREE systems already covering these routes. A "rapid bus line" along this route is redundant.

The DSBRT should extend beyond this busy part of Oshawa so that those travelling from less densely populated areas don't have to drive into the more densely populated area to catch a bus; this is poor planning on your part - If you want to encourage people to take transit, you need to make it as easy and quick as possible for them

Through the narrow portion of downtown Whitby, the buses should simply join general traffic lanes rather than creating a major bottleneck for the purposes of continuity of the lane.

I have observed the expansions through Ajax, Markham, Vaughan, Newmarket and York Region in general.
The dedicated bus lanes cost millions of dollars.
I see few buses and not very full buses in the bus lanes, however I do see traffic congestion for cars.
Would it not be wiser to just serve the many? Are there statistics to justify bus lanes?

Can you please provide current (post-Covid commuting) study data on expected traffic volumes and neighbourhood traffic infiltration with only 1 shared westbound lane in downtown Whitby ? Need to understand that impact to the whole community against the value of having a slightly wider sidewalk for one block Brock to Byron.
