Hamilton B-Line rapid transit open houses, June 1, 3, 9



The City of Hamilton is hosting three public open houses to receive feedback on its latest proposals to introduce rapid transit along the Main Street / King Street / Queenston Road corridor between McMaster University and Eastgate Terminal.

One of the key issues that your feedback may help to determine is how the proposed line should operate through central Hamilton between Paradise Road and the Delta (where King and Main Streets East cross.)

Possibilities include:

  • continue to operate King and Main Streets as one-way streets and operate the rapid transit line one way along each street;
  • operate King and Main Streets as one-way streets but operate the rapid transit line both ways along one of the streets; and
  • operate King and Main Streets as two-way streets and operate the rapid transit line both ways along one of the streets.

The meetings take place from 3 until 8 p.m., with staff making brief presentations at 4 and 6 p.m. each day.

Rapid transit in Hamilton along the King / Main / Queenston Road corridor and north-south along the James and Upper James Street corridor is a priority project of The Big Move, the Metrolinx regional transportation plan for the Greater Toronto Area and Hamilton. It is also a priority project of Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty’s vision of transportation in the Greater Golden Horseshoe, the MoveOntario 2020 plan.
