 A map indicating the three different corridor design segments for the City of Oshawa portion of the BRT project. Segment 1 is King Street from west of Thornton Road to Bond Street; the design proposes to widen the segment to add two dedicated centre-median transit lanes and maintain existing four lanes for general traffic. Segment 2 is King Street from Bond Street to Simcoe Street; the design proposes to convert a general traffic lane to a curbside dedicated transit lane. Buses will travel eastbound on this segment. Segment 3 is on Bond Street from King Street to Simcoe Street; the design proposes to convert a general traffic lane to a curbside dedicated transit lane. Buses will travel westbound on this segment. A table explaining the lane modifications for each road segment in the City of Oshawa. Segment 1: Existing Lanes, 4. Future proposed traffic lanes, 4. Total number of lanes including BRT lanes, 6. Segment 2 Eastbound: Existing Lanes, 4. Future proposed traffic lanes, 2. Total number of lanes including BRT lanes, 3. Segment 3 Westbound: Existing Lanes, 4. Future proposed traffic lanes, 2. Total number of lanes including BRT lanes, 3.

Based on the preliminary preferred design, a new turnaround option is proposed. Dedicated transit infrastructure would extend to Simcoe Street. East of Simcoe Street, buses would run in mixed traffic.

The recommended route for the Durham-Scarborough BRT service is:

Eastbound:
King Street » Ritson Road » William Street (layover location)

Westbound:
Division Street » King Street » Ritson Street » Bond Street

This turnaround option will be further considered in consultation with Durham Region Transit and the City of Oshawa.

The map identifies the recommended turnaround route for eastbound and westbound buses, and also identifies the proposed layover location that will serve as the eastern terminal. The layover location is located on William Street east of Division Street.
