Transit priority solutions improve the speed, capacity and reliability of bus and streetcar service. Giving buses or streetcars priority on a street can be achieved through a range of solutions.
Transit priority solutions specific to each community will be identified for the roadways that score highest in the evaluation in Phase 3, through extensive study, design work and consultation with the public. The transit priority solutions for specific roadways are not being selected in the current phase (Phase 1).
Once implemented, the success of transit priority roadways will be determined by assessing bus reliability, travel times for buses and autos, bus capacity and positive impacts on equity.
Examples of priority solutions that may be implemented include:
