ION is coming to the region!

Stay connected. GRT (Grand River Transit) is introducing a new and better way to get around our city! Light Rail Transit is an express train with 16 stops planned to be ready for use in 2017.

Domus can’t wait to start using the LRT – it is about to get so much easier to explore our city!

As described on the RIDE ION website, here are the details…

“Stage 1 is a 36-kilometre corridor that includes 19 kilometres of LRT from the Conestoga Mall transit terminal in Waterloo to the Fairview Park Mall transit terminal in Kitchener. It also features 17 kilometres of adapted Bus Rapid Transit (aBRT) from the Ainslie Street transit terminal in Cambridge to the Fairview Park Mall transit terminal.”


“ION is part of a Region-wide transit system that will connect rapid transit with a network of Grand River Transit (GRT) iXpress and local bus routes. ION and GRT will operate with one fare for all services and free transfers between both systems. ION will link to GO Transit, VIA Rail services as well as walking and cycling trails to help provide sustainable transportation choices.”

So keep your eyes open and start getting excited. Student living just keeps getting better and better!
