New Directions is GRT's plan to build a better, faster transit network over the next five years, centred on ION light rail
Grand River Transit Northfield Drive Facility
Grand River Transit (GRT) continues to expand transit services and increase ridership.
As a result, GRT must expand their fleet of conventional and specialized transit vehicles. This includes adding buses for Bus Rapid Transit Service and providing higher capacity feeder service for Light Rail Transit.
The two existing transit facilities at Strasburg Road in Kitchener and Conestoga Boulevard in Cambridge cannot accommodate additional buses.
As a result the Region has identified the need for another transit facility to store and maintain the additional buses.
The Northfield Drive Facility project is being conducted as a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment, Schedule "C", because it involves constructing a new facility that may result in impacts on property, land use and traffic operations.
