Züm is a key component of Brampton’s long-term multi-modal plan. Identified in the Transportation and Transit Master Plan (TTMP 2004 & 2009), it is a positive step towards achieving an efficient and effective long-term transportation network in the city.
Key elements of the plan also include building upon the strength of the existing local, regional and interregional networks and expanding opportunities for development in other key corridors.
Other important elements of the TTMP vision include:
- Transit priority measures on Main Street/Hurontario Street, Queen Street, Steeles Avenue and Bovaird Drive.
- Improved inter-regional and inter-municipal service connections and integration –including links to new BRT services in Mississauga and York Region’s VIVA, as well as the TTC's surface transit and subway network.
- Improved transit access to and from transit terminals in the City, including GO Train and GO Bus stations.
- Expanded transit services in growth areas (including employment zones and key trip destinations) as well as improved connections to major regional destinations (e.g., Toronto Pearson International Airport, Vaughan Corporate Centre in York Region, York University, Mississauga City Centre and Humber College in Toronto).
