GRT iXpress routes are designed to transport riders along the fastest, most efficient route with fewer stops along the way. There are four iXpress routes that run in Waterloo Region, the 200, 201, 202 and 203. Several additional iXpress routes will be added over the coming years.
200 iXpress travels between the Ainslie Terminal in Cambridge and Conestoga Mall in Waterloo along Hespeler, Highway 401, Highway 8 and through Downtown Kitchener, Uptown Waterloo and the University of Waterloo.
201 iXpress travels between Forest Glen Plaza in Kitchener and Conestoga Mall in Waterloo along Block Line, Fischer-Hallman, Columbia, and King.
202 iXpress travels between The Boardwalk and Conestoga Mall along the Erb Street and University Avenue corridors.
203 iXpress travels between Cambridge Centre and Sportsworld along Franklin Boulevard and Maple Grove Road. This latest route launched on April 28, 2014.
With fewer stops along route, iXpress is faster than other local bus routes. Fifteen key intersections are outfitted with transit priority signals to allow the 200 iXpress buses to move along routes more quickly. These signals detect buses as they approach and either extends the green or shortens the red signal to minimize delays.
iXpress stations connect existing GRT routes, walking and cycling. Digital signs in shelters display the actual arrival time of the next bus. Select stations also have map displays, bike racks and bike lockers. All GRT buses now have bike racks, so walking, cycling and transit connect seamlessly.
