The Rapid Transit Strategy is Halifax Regional Municipality’s (HRM) plan to build a Rapid Transit system by 2030.
The Strategy builds on the vision of the Integrated Mobility Plan, aiming to improve sustainable transportation options and better support population growth. It invests in high-quality transit service and infrastructure, a key to improving residents’ mobility and building more sustainable, affordable, and equitable communities.
Rapid Transit is fast and reliable transit service that typically operates in a dedicated right of way and can shape land use patterns by attracting development near stations and terminals. It gets you where you want to go, when you want to go, faster and more frequently—seven days a week.
The Strategy establishes Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Network, proposes new ferry service, and sets a direction for land use policy to align with Rapid Transit.
