Express bus coming to MRU
by Zoey Duncan
Though students will not see a CTrain come to Mount Royal University any time soon, a bus rapid transit (BRT) route will eventually make its way to the school. Ward 11 Ald. Brian Pincott advocated in January for a study to be done to find the best way to run a BRT line from downtown to the school.
Pincott said that he wants to see a BRT route that would not be affected by rush hour or traffic accidents. The study is now un- derway to plot the best route for the eventual bus, which will be part of a southwest BRT line. When the Westbrook LRT station opens in 2012 as part of the track extension, the BRT would head from that station to MRU, Pincott said.
