The original plan for the Hamilton LRT project will include approximately 11 kilometers of new light rail that will connect McMaster University through downtown Hamilton to Queenston Circle. The project also includes a high-order pedestrian connection to the Hamilton GO Centre Station, and a maintenance and storage facility.

In April of 2017, Hamilton City Council voted in favour of the LRT line, but decided to investigate the 14 km option, versus the original 11 km option, extending the line eastward from Queenston Circle to Eastgate Square.

In May of 2017, Hamilton submitted an updated plan following the change in the scope of the project, and received approval to proceed as amended.
