The new Ontario government is helping more residents in Durham take public transit by supporting the rollout of bus rapid transit (BRT) service along the Highway 2 BRT corridor.
Durham Region Transit’s new Pulse service includes 26 fully-accessible, low-floor BRT vehicles that feature clean diesel technology, lighter weight aluminum wheels and improved fuel economy. The service will begin on June 29, 2013, operating seven days a week on Highway 2 between downtown Oshawa and the University of Toronto campus in Scarborough.
Investing in public transit is part of the new Ontario government’s plan to help reduce congestion, strengthen the economy and create jobs.
“It is a great boost for Durham all along Highway 2, including Ajax and Pickering. It moves people quicker while helping to ease gridlock.”
— Joe Dickson, MPP Ajax-Pickering
“The new Ontario government is working to build a stronger province that will create good jobs and strong, healthy communities with projects like the Durham Highway 2 BRT project. Once complete, DRT Pulse will get local commuters where they need to go sooner and connect people to other transit systems in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area.”
— Glen Murray, Minister of Infrastructure, Minister of Transportation
