GRT has laid out an ambitious plan to build a better, faster transit network over the next five years, centred on ION light rail.
A strong transit network is essential to keep our region moving as our population continues to grow. Investing in transit will help us manage congestion, reduce urban sprawl, and get the most out of our transportation infrastructure.
Key initiatives in GRT's New Directions plan
- Seamless connections to ION
Bus routes redesigned to connect directly to ION light rail or ION bus stations, so you can transfer seamlessly.
- New express routes running on key corridors
Fast, direct service between key destinations.
- More frequent service on busy routes
Leave when you want, without checking the schedule, because there's always a bus coming.
- More direct routes supporting a grid network
Local routes redesigned for more efficient travel.
- Fast and convenient electronic fare payment
Tap a smart card on the electronic farebox to pay your fare, and load value on your card right from home.
- More comfortable rides, stops and stations
New terminals and transit hubs, more shelters and more real-time displays. Plus more frequent service means less crowded buses.
