Waterloo Light Rail Transit
The Region of Waterloo rapid transit system will connect the three major urban centres of Cambridge, Kitchener and Waterloo. Rapid transit, along with the Central Transit Corridor Community Building Strategy, will shape the community by encouraging re-urbanization in existing urban areas. Rapid transit will provide a sustainable transportation choice that supports the efficient use of land, protection of the countryside, reducing per trip greenhouse gas emissions, promote active transportation choices, and protect important agricultural and natural resources.
