RapidBus Program

Faster, more frequent, and reliable bus service is here! As part of the Mayors' 10-Year Vision, RapidBus is a new bus service offering fewer stops and up to 20% faster service than local buses. We've launched two new RapidBus routes and upgraded the 95 and 96 B-Line to the new brand:

The 99 B-Line will continue to serve Commercial–Broadway Station and UBC during construction of the Broadway Subway.

To ensure RapidBuses can deliver fast and reliable service and don't get stuck in traffic, we've worked with local governments to identify street and traffic changes that will speed up bus-travel times. These changes—also referred to as bus-priority measures—include changes to traffic signals, turn restrictions, introducing dedicated bus lanes and more. Street changes target areas where buses face the worst delays. Changes are then tailored to the unique street context. Bus-priority measures improve travel times for all buses travelling along the corridors while having a negligible impact on regular traffic.

In spring 2018 we consulted on the service and stops for the new routes, as well as proposed changes to local routes and potential transit-priority measures. We had over 5,755 responses to our online survey and heard from 1,678 people at 22 public events.

We heard strong support for all of the proposed routes, stops, and potential transit-priority measures and made some changes based on feedback. For up to date information on the service plan for each corridor see the route specific pages. For more information on what we heard during consultation, please see the consultation report.
