Stage 2 ION

Stage 2 ION: Light rail transit from Kitchener to Cambridge

ION, the Region of Waterloo's rapid transit service, which was approved by Council in June 2011, is a visionary plan that will help shape our community for the future by bringing LRT to the region in two stages.

Stage 2 ION will see the Region replace the ION bus service in Cambridge with LRT, creating a seamless LRT route across Waterloo Region's three urban centres. Public consultation is an important and ongoing part of the planning process.

In June 2018, Region of Waterloo Council endorsed a Preferred Route for the Stage 2 ION project, subject to further evaluation of the portion of the route between Shantz Hill Road and Eagle Street North at William Street.
