Dundas Street Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) is a bus rapid transit corridor proposed by Metrolinx through the regional transportation plan The Big Move.[1] The City of Mississauga is using the brand Dundas Connects during the development phase.[2]

The Dundas Street BRT would be a major east-west corridor for the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area, extending 40 kilometres (25 miles) along Dundas Street from the western terminus of Line 2 Bloor–Danforth in Toronto to Brant Street in Burlington. It would also make connections with the proposed Hurontario LRT and GO Transit's Milton line. The estimated capital cost is $600 million.[1]

The corridor is proposed to end at Brant Street. The Big Move calls for a connecting rapid transit corridor at this terminus, which would proceed south to the Burlington GO Station and Downtown Burlington.[3]
