Congratulations to Waterloo region residents where there is finally a decision to proceed with a combination LRT/BRT service and finally implement a Rapid Transit solution in Waterloo region.

As a resident of Waterloo I am glad to see that regional council had the fortitude to make this decision in favour of LRT. We know full well with growth in the region that some form of mass rapid transit will inevitably be necessary. Postponing the decision would only have meant that it would have been more expensive in the future. A column in the Globe and Mail a couple of weeks ago on BRT systems across the country, showed that where they have been implemented they hit capacity almost immediately. LRT will put us in the company of many cities especially in the US that have opted for such systems.
