Metrolinx hosting public meetings about Pickering-to-Oshawa BRT project


Published October 12, 2021 at 2:34 pm

Metrolinx is holding a series of public information sessions starting Wednesday (October14) for residents to talk about the proposed Durham Scarborough Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project in their community.

The BRT project would add approximately 36-kilometres of new dedicated transit, connecting downtown Oshawa, Whitby, Ajax, Pickering, and Scarborough.

The 49-stop project would run in a dedicated bus lane, allowing transit riders to get where they need to go faster and is expected to serve 38,400 passengers per day.

Metrolinx has moved back the timelines for the upcoming Transit Project Assessment Process and start of the virtual public engagement. This shift in timing will not impact the overall project assessment process but will provide for additional public feedback.

The next set of formal public engagements will be hosted virtually on Metrolinx Engage. Residents can log on and participate part any time between Wednesday and November 11.

There will also be three live virtual sessions on Thursday, October 21, Tuesday, October 26 and Thursday, October 28 where people can talk to Metrolinx staff and ask questions directly. All three sessions will run from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
