The Business Case for a Full Bus Rapid Transit Network Alternative was approved by Council on May 31, 2016. It has since been submitted to the Provincial and Federal Governments for review, comment and approval for funding.
Now that the Rapid Transit initiative is at the implementation stage, it has become evident that there is a need to establish a Working Group with a more clearly defined focus on the following objectives, in order to better facilitate the implementation of the Bus Rapid Transit
- Review and provide input on reports brought forward regarding the rapid transit implementation project;
- Participate, as appropriate, in broader community engagement at key points throughout the planning, design and construction phases of the rapid transit implementation process.
- Serve as a liaison point between the London Transit Commission and the Municipal Council on matters respecting the development and implementation of London’s rapid transit initiative
- Review and provide input to the Municipal Council, through the Civic Works Committee, with respect to the development and implementation of London’s rapid transit initiative.
The implementation of the Rapid Transit initiative is a multi-year program. The next steps include the completion of the Environmental Assessment, preliminary design, consultation with the public on various design elements and construction staging, and the integration of the Rapid Transit initiative with the LTC local transit service.
