Long Term Transit Strategy
In 2010 Durham Region Transit (DRT) completed a Long Term Transit Strategy (LTTS) to identify existing transit demands and project the future needs of 2031 and beyond.
One of the first projects identified is Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) service on Hwy 2 connecting downtown Pickering and Oshawa.
BRT is a premium service that will operate with special features.
When completed, the new BRT service will include:
BRT Bus service in mixed traffic
7.5 minute service during peak periods
Advanced technologies to reduce travel time
26 new BRT dedicated buses
for the transit priority study of Hwy 2 in Ajax and Pickering for BRT service.
