What is the “Future Transitway” and is it a part of the Highway 407 East project?

As described in the approved Environmental Assessment, the transitway is an independent right-of-way, that is adjacent and runs parallel to the highway corridor. It is likely that rubber-wheeled vehicle buses would move on this dedicated transit corridor initially, with the possibility of a rail facility implemented if roadway and ridership increased. Stations with commuter parking lots are also planned at various interchange locations.

The construction of the transitway is not part of the Highway 407 East project; though the transitway corridor has been protected, as the province has acquired the necessary lands as approved under the Environmental Assessment. The transitway has no construction timeline. The mode of transportation nor the operator have been determined at this time.
