Rapid Transit

In 2016, after hearing from the community on what the transportation system of tomorrow should be, VIA adopted Vision 2040, a long-range plan for public transportation across the region. Vision 2040 has three parts which work together to transform the VIA of today into the VIA of tomorrow. One central part is the creation of rapid transit corridors – dedicated lanes for public transportation to provide frequent, reliable service able to bypass the traffic of cars and trucks on our roadways.

Within these corridors we may see bus rapid transit, using vehicles similar to Primo, or we may see a trackless train, a new technology being tested in China currently. Having these dedicated corridors enables more choices and more options for your daily trips – and puts transit in the driver seat when it comes to provide the rapid and robust system our community has told us it wants to see.
