Notice of Commencement and Notice of Public Consultation: London’s Bus Rapid Transit System – Transit Project Assessment Process

The Project

The City of London’s Bus Rapid Transit System will provide more frequent and reliable transit service to Londoners. On July 25, 2017, London City Council approved the Rapid Transit Master Plan that defined the network, stop locations and that the system would operate as a Bus Rapid Transit system.(Approved BRT network map)

The Process
The City of London is assessing the impacts of the Bus Rapid Transit System according to the Transit Project Assessment Process (TPAP), as prescribed in Ontario Regulation 231/08. TPAP focuses on the assessment of potential impacts of a selected transit project, in this case, the approximately 24 km Bus Rapid Transit network comprised of north, east, south, and west corridors, and a one-way downtown couple.
This Notice of Commencement marks the beginning of the formal 120-day TPAP consultation period, starting June 7, 2018, and ending when the Notice of Completion is issued. As part of TPAP, an Environmental Project Report (EPR) will be filed, documenting any potential environmental effects and mitigation requirements of the project. Documents related to the Project, including technical studies and consultation materials, are available on the project website. The public, regulatory agencies, Indigenous communities, and other interested persons will have an opportunity to review the EPR during a formal 30-day review period. Viewing locations of the EPR will be published in the Notice of Completion. Objections may be submitted to the Minister of the Environment and Climate Change during this period.
All information produced as part of this project is available on the project website at www.londonbrt.ca.

Consultation
During the 120-day TPAP consultation period, the City of London will be hosting consultation in two formats, as detailed below. The purpose of each session is to obtain feedback on the Council-approved design.
At each session you will have the chance to:

  • Review the Council-approved BRT plans, ask questions and share ideas to help fine tune the designs.
  • Provide feedback on the Draft Environmental Report, which outlines the BRT project in detail, identifies the potential impacts and the plans to mitigate those impacts.
  • Learn more about matters that are of interest to the Province – such as natural environment, cultural heritage, and Indigenous affairs – and understand how to provide feedback on these issues.
