GRT is making a number of improvements to service in 2017, which will increase frequency and reduce overcrowding on several routes. They will also improve schedule reliability on several routes, and restore minimum levels of service on two routes. 

Also in 2017, a new transit station will be developed at the University of Waterloo, adjacent to ION light rail, and several routes will be modified to serve the UW Transit Station.
