Municipal Staff are currently completing detailed design for dedicated bus lanes on Robie Street (Quinpool Road to Young Street) and Young Street (Robie Street to Windsor Street). This project is a key component of the Integrated Mobility Plan (2017), which recommended investment in transit lanes for the Robie Street and Young Street corridors in order to give priority to buses over general traffic, improve transit reliability, and ultimately encourage more people to use transit.
Following a planning and functional engineering design process, Regional Council approved a phased approach to the implementation of curbside bus lanes on Robie Street and Young Street. Phase One, which includes reallocation of the existing street space to allow for the addition of bus lanes, is targeted for implementation in 2020. Phase Two will require expansion of the current roadway limits, which will require additional investigation – timelines are currently uncertain for Phase Two implementation. View the staff report.
