Queen Street Transit Master Plan


The City of Brampton, through Brampton Transit, is undertaking the Queen Street Transit Master Plan Study (Queen Street Study) to develop a framework for advancing rapid transit along the Queen Street/Highway 7 corridor. The study will recommend a preferred approach for upgrading the existing Züm priority bus service on Queen Street East to full rapid transit standard, while allowing for future expansion in infrastructure, technology, and capacity over the longer term as warranted by demand, operational requirements, and technology availability.

As presented at the June 20, 2018 Committee of Council meeting and the June 21 and 25 Public Information Centre events, it has been determined that Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) in dedicated lanes should be the first step in implementing rapid transit in the Queen Street East corridor. The projected timeframe for implementation is five to 10 years, subject to funding and approvals.
