Waterloo to break ground on rapid-transit system


The Region of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada, will host a groundbreaking ceremony Aug. 21 for Stage 1 of the ION rapid-transit system at the future site of the operations, maintenance and storage facility on Dutton Drive.

Scheduled to attend the event are Parliament member Peter Braid, Ontario Transportation Minister Steven Del Duca and local officials, according to an agency press release.

Stage 1 of the rapid-transit system consists of a light-rail line between Conestoga Mall in the city of Waterloo and Fairview Park Mall in the city of Kitchener; an adapted bus rapid-transit route; and 22 stations along the corridor.
