Better Bus Stops for Carling Avenue

Improvements are proposed at several bus stops along Carling Avenue between Sir John A. MacDonald Parkway and Bayshore Drive as part of the Better Bus Stops program. We invite customers to provide feedback on the project through our online questionnaire.

These changes will affect customers travelling on Routes 11, 51, 57, 85, 153 and 154

The Better Bus Stops Project works with neighbourhoods to improve the location and accessibility of bus stops and shelters. To provide a better customer experience, we’re reviewing bus stops to improve:

  • travel times
  • service reliability
  • accessibility
  • customer comfort
