The Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO) is undertaking the Planning Phase, the Environmental Assessment (EA) and the Preliminary Design for the 407 Transitway from west of Brant Street to west of Winston Churchill Boulevard.

The study will follow the Transit Project Assessment Process (TPAP) prescribed in Ontario Regulation 231/08, Transit Projects and Metrolinx Undertakings under the Environmental Assessment Act. The 407 Transitway will be a two-lane, fully grade separated transit facility on an exclusive right-of-way, running along the Highway 407 Corridor. This section of the transitway facility will consist of 35 km of runningway and a number of stations whose locations will be determined as part of this study.The station layouts will include vehicular and pedestrian access(es), park and ride and pick-up/drop off (PPUDO) facilities, bus lay bay facilitates, on street integration with local transit, shelters, buildings and other amenities. The transitway and the stations will initially be designed to support a two-lane busway service with provisions for future conversion to a two-track light-rail transit technology.

This 35 km segment forms part of the 150 km long high-speed interregional facility planned to be ultimately constructed on a separate right-of-way that parallels Highway 407 from Burlington to Highway 35/115, with stations, parking and access connections. This transitway is a component within the official plans of the stakeholder municipalities and of the Province's commitment to support transit initiatives in the Greater Golden Horseshoe through the Metrolinx Regional Transportation Plan.
