Rapid Transit Public Meetings

The City of Hamilton's public works department is hosting two public information centres on the rapid transit feasibility study.

HAMILTON, ON - May 1, 2008 - Hamilton's Public Works Department will host two Public Information Centres next week to share findings of a recently completed Rapid Transit Feasibility Study and to gather valuable stakeholder feedback.

The Rapid Transit Feasibility Study reviewed constraints and opportunities for both bus rapid transit (BRT) and light rail transit (LRT) along the corridors outlined in the Transportation Master Plan.

The Study indicates that both options are feasible in Hamilton and will need to be explored further through an extensive public consultation process to determine how best to provide rapid transit service in Hamilton.

Two rapid transit routes were investigated by the Study:

  • A-Line - James/Upper James from the Hamilton Airport to the Waterfront
  • B-Line - Main/King from University Plaza to Eastgate Square

  • Date: Tuesday, May 6
