    The Central Transit Corridor runs through some of the most developed areas of the region, connecting Cambridge in the south through Kitchener to the northern end of Waterloo.

  • THE CONTEXTThe Region of Waterloo is planning for rapid transit along the Central Transit Corridor, a 36 km central spine that connects Cambridge, Kitchener, and Waterloo. Along with designing the transit infrastructure and its 23 stations, a key piece of work the Region is undertaking to leverage this investment, is the creation of a Community Building Strategy. This strategy will identify key directions for city building, place making and moving people within, to, and from this Corridor. In crafting the Central Transit Corridor (CTC) Community Building Strategy, the Region and its local municipal partners would like to work closely with the diverse range of stakeholders along the Corridor to ensure their perspectives are understood, and the full opportunity offered by this important transit investment is captured.

    The Central Transit Corridor (CTC)

    The Community Building Strategy

    The Central Transit Corridor (CTC) is a rapid transit spine connecting the three cities of Cambridge, Kitchener, and Waterloo. By 2017,

    the rst stage of the 36km transit line will operate with adapted bus rapid transit service from Ainslie Street Terminal to Fairview Park

    Mall, and LRT between Fairview Park Mall and Conestoga Mall. Over the long term, the LRT will be extended from Fairview Park Mall

    south along the length of the corridor. In addition to the enhanced transit service, the corridor will create a range of new city building

    opportunities for new and improved uses, open spaces and community supportive initiatives along the line.

    The CTC Community Building Strategy is about exploring the potential of the rapid transit investment to provide enhanced mobility,

    place making, reurbanization, and strengthened communities throughout and along the Corridor. The Community Building Strategy

    will be the framework that the Region, Cities, and communities will use to dene these opportunities, demonstrate the scale and

    scope of change that is desirable, and provide direction on how best to maximize the community-building potential offered by the

    transit investment.

    The CTC Community Building Strategy is led by the Region of Waterloos Planning, Housing, and Community Services Department.

    The Region has retained a consultant team to assist them in developing the strategy. Urban St
