The Metrolinx 2041 Regional Transportation Plan identifies Queen Street and Highway 7 as part of the frequent rapid transit network and as a part of the larger transit network in GTHA.
This critical inter-regional transit corridor connects a number of residential, employment, community, and recreational destinations within Brampton spanning west to east, and with York Region, and beyond.
Both the Region of Peel’s Long Range Transportation Plan and its Major Transit Station Area Study call for an increase in the share of trips made by sustainable modes of transportation, including transit.
The Brampton 2040 Vision identifies the Queen Street corridor as a key spine supporting the enhanced rapid transit network. The City’s Transportation Master Plan recommends bus rapid transit and priority bus service along Queen Street as a key infrastructure element to support projected transit demand. The Queen St – Highway 7 BRT will help achieve the Plan’s goal of having 50% of 2041 trips through sustainable modes.
