Queen Street Brampton Master Plan:
Public meeting, May 18



QSTMP_Web_Banner.jpg

Queen Street is a major east-west street through Brampton — it becomes Highway 7 in York Region. The City of Brampton wants to revitalize the street over the long term and intensify the urban character of the street. Transit service will play a critical role in developing this area.

Part of the City’s vision for rapid transit in the Queen Street corridor is to evolve rapid transit from the current Züm bus service operating in regular traffic to a transit-only route between Downtown Brampton and Vaughan Metropolitan Centre. This future rapid transit service will connect passengers with GO Transit’s Kitchener train line and Züm bus rapid transit services in the west and York Region Transit / Viva bus rapid transit and the TTC subway in the east.

When the City has finished studying the corridor, the Queen Street Transit Master Plan will recommend a transit technology — light rail transit, bus rapid transit or a combination of both — for Queen Street between McLaughlin Road and Regional Road 50. Building on work that Metrolinx completed in 2013, the study will also examine land use, urban design, active transportation and traffic.

This Thursday, May 18, you can help develop a vision for Queen Street by providing your comments and ideas on improving how people get around — including walking, cycling, riding transit, driving — and designing and planning a downtown mobility hub.

Drop in anytime from 6 until 9 p.m. to the Atrium in Brampton City Hall, 2 Wellington Street West.
