Douglas Street Priority Transit & Cycling Lanes

New priority lanes for transit buses and cyclists are under construction along Douglas Street

The next  phase of priority transit and cycling lanes is planned from Hillside Avenue to Tolmie Avenue and is now under construction.

The new priority lanes are designed to shorten travel times for transit customers, increase the reliability of public transit and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by limiting idling and lowering the number of vehicles on the road. The new lanes are seen as the first step to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of public transit in the region and into the downtown core.

The Douglas Street corridor currently supports as many as 1,700 vehicles per hour during peak travel times. Transit and cycling priority lanes currently run from Fisgard Street to Hillside Avenue.
