Waterloo Region Rapid Transit fast tracked: could be as early as 2013

By shost at 9:07 pm on Wednesday, May 28, 2008

By 2013 Waterloo region residents could be gliding along Rapid Transit light rail systems between Waterloo and Kitchener as part of a plan to fast track municipal and provincial approval for the system.

According to the K-W Record, on May 24, the Province, who is paying 2/3 the cost of the system, invited the Region to fast track their approval, where in turn, the Province would fast track theirs. This shaves 2 years of the approval times required.

The routes and technology (Trains, Bus, etc) will be selected by this fall, said the article.

.. the timing of this is also interesting… GO Transit is pushing Trains into Kitchener and Guelph. See the next post for more.

Even after meeting with the project manager of this rapid transit initiative, I remain unconvinced this system will be of much use to us in the present and its success is thus questionable.
