Rapid transit initiative


The Region of Waterloo's new rapid transit system - featuring light-rail trains (ION) and adaptive buses - will begin accepting passengers in 2018. This new initiative is expected to play a major role in the long-term growth and continued economic prosperity of our area.

With this in mind, and working closely with the region, we have spent the past few years holistically planning the areas around the rapid-transit station stops to be built throughout Kitchener - a project known as 'Planning Around Rapid Transit Stations' (PARTS). PARTS provides the framework for guiding future transit-supportive development and investment in the areas around the station stops - building on the region's central transit corridor community building strategy.
