Dundas BRT - Provide Your Feedback

Previous municipal planning studies and the Metrolinx Initial Business Case confirmed the need for improved bus transit infrastructure along Dundas Street. Metrolinx is now advancing plans for the Dundas Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridor. The purpose of the Dundas BRT project is to evaluate the proposed transit corridor along a 48 kilometre stretch of Dundas Street from Highway 6 in the City of Hamilton through to the Kipling Transit Hub in the City of Toronto, linking Etobicoke and Mississauga City Centres. More than 20 kilometres, of the 48 kilometre BRT, will operate in bus lanes or in a dedicated right-of-way, separate from other traffic, allowing faster and more reliable transit connections. 

The Dundas BRT is part of a bigger picture for an integrated, multi-modal regional transportation system that will serve the needs of residents, businesses and institutions. It supports Ontario’s Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe, 2017, which sets out a broad vision for where and how our region will grow and identifies policies on transportation planning in the GTHA. 

Preliminary Design Feedback 

The preliminary design phase will build upon the pre-planning completed as part of the Transit Project Assessment Process (TPAP) for Toronto and Mississauga. In this phase, the project team will utilize the environmental impact assessment from the TPAP to refine the BRT design to a 30% design level. The 30% design will seek to further refine corridor infrastructure widths such as lanes, buffers, boulevards, active transportation facilities, and grading limits in order to reduce the site-specific impacts identified in the TPAP. The preliminary design will generate the analytic information to feed the PDBC that will be completed by the project team to allow Metrolinx to make evidence-based investment decisions.  

  • Pinch points are areas of special interest where necessary road widening is constrained by the existing environment or where other design challenges are present (e.g., integrating BRT service into and gaining access to an existing transit station). The study of each portion of the route will include a thorough analysis of identified pinch points. Pinch Point Analysis is a systematic process for engineering design which involves considering several concepts to identify the optional use of resources.
