Durham-Scarborough Bus Rapid Transit - Environment Assessment

DSBRT - Environmental Studies

Review the draft environmental studies information and learn about the potential impacts and mitigation measures that could be applied to reduce or eliminate potential impacts.

Metrolinx is planning and building for tomorrow to keep the Region moving as it continues to grow.

This means planning expansion and new infrastructure projects to serve this growing population into 2041 and beyond. To help people get to where they need to go, Metrolinx is working to bring a more frequent and reliable transit service to Durham Region and the City of Toronto through the Durham-Scarborough Bus Rapid Transit (DSBRT) project.

To get there, a Transit Project Assessment Process (TPAP) – to study impacts and proposed mitigation strategies – will be completed. 

The Transit Project Assessment Process (TPAP) is a focused impact assessment created specifically for transit projects, regulated under Ontario’s Environmental Assessment Act.

The process involves a pre-planning phase followed by a regulated timeline (up to120 days) for agency review and includes consultation, assessment of impacts, development of measures to mitigate negative impacts, and documentation.

The TPAP for the DSBRT project commenced October 14, 2021. Public Information Centre #4 is now closed – we thank you for your comments and feedback. The Environmental Project Report (EPR) will be available on Metrolinx engage in Winter 2022 as part of the thirty (30) day public review period per the Transit Project Assessment Process (TPAP).
