Better Bus Stops Project: Merivale Rd.

Better Bus Stops Banner

We are reviewing the stop locations on Merivale Rd. between Carling Ave. and Baseline Rd. and want to know what you think.

The changes will provide customers who travel along this route with:

  • Faster travel times
  • More reliable trips
  • Improved comfort

New bus lanes

Existing curb-side lanes on Merivale Rd. between Carling Ave. and Baseline Rd. will be changed to bus-only lanes during peak periods.

Walking distances to bus stops

The bus stop changes are in keeping with our target to provide access to transit within a 400 m (or 5-minute) walk.

  • Some customers will have a slightly shorter walk
  • Some customers will have a slightly longer walk

Accessibility

This summer asphalt pads will be added at the new bus stops to improve accessibility. 

Customer safety & comfort

All bus stops along the corridor benefit from streetlights on Merivale Rd. The stop changes will encourage the use of stops in highly visible locations with amenities like benches and shelters. New shelters will be installed at some stop locations to improve customer comfort.

Give feedback on this project

The Better Bus Stops Project works with neighbourhoods to improve the location and accessibility of bus stops and shelters. Walking distance, trip reliability, and customer comfort and safety influence the location of bus stops along the route.
