When:  Approximately 2017 – 2025

Why: Mississauga and Brampton  currently have a combined population of close to 1.5 million people and an employment base of nearly 587,000.

In the next 20 years, the Region of Peel will need to accommodate over 300,000 people and approximately 150,000 jobs, much of which will be in Brampton and Mississauga. Nearly a quarter of that growth is expected to live in the area immediately surrounding the Hurontario-Main corridor.
With the current traffic levels along the corridor and the projected growth in development, traffic and population, the corridor would approach or exceed traffic capacity along many of its sections

LRT Mississauga

 

Lots of great NEW additions are comming our way to the Mississauga City Centre Core. This is all part of the Downtown21 Master Plan. The City of Mississauga continues to move forward on its $1.3-billion light-rail transit (LRT) project . The LRT, which will run along Hurontario St. from Port Credit to downtown Brampton, has moved into the design phase. The 20-kilometre route will have as many as 32 stations and is being touted as a way to reduce commute times and improve connections to GO Transit and the Bus Rapid Transit line, which is currently under construction, and other transit options.

Approaching from the north, the transit route utilizes a new bridge over Mississauga Light-Rail Transit - Downtown21 Upcoming PlanHighway 403 that aligns with the north-south portion of City Centre Drive. This bridge avoids the Highway 403 interchange at Hurontario Street and provides a valuable pedestrian and bicycle connection across Highway 403, connecting the north and south portions of the Cooksville Creek Greenway. The route then travels west along Rathburn Road to Living Arts Drive, south to Burnhamthorpe Road and then east back to Hurontario Street.

A secondary connection travels south along City Centre Drive via Clarica Drive to Hurontario Street. The resulting downtown system creates routing andMississauga Light-Rail Transit - Downtown21 Upcoming Plan operational flexibility. From the south (Port Credit) – LRT can circle the downtown and return south. From the north (Burnhamthorpe) – LRT can circle the downtown and return north. Every second LRT vehicle can be a through trip.

Mississauga Bus Rapid Transit Project

The City of Mississauga is constructing BRT Project infrastructure in the City Centre as well as the busway corridor and stations from Hurontario Street to Renforth Station. GO, a Division of Metrolinx, is constructing the busway and stations from Winston Churchill Boulevard to Erin Mills Parkway. Construction will continue over the next few years with completion expected in 2013.

The City of Mississauga, in partnership with GO Transit, is constructing a new busway which will run along the Highway 403, Eastgate Parkway and Eglinton Avenue corridors. Mississauga Transit and GO Transit buses will have exclusive use of this busway to help move thousands of riders quickly and efficiently through Mississauga and the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).
The BRT Project is funded by the Government of Canada, the Province of Ontario, GO Transit and the City of Mississauga through the Canada Strategic Infrastructure Fund.

The Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project will be a high-efficiency transit corridor running east-west across Mississauga. The BRT will support all-station stop and extensive express bus service for thousands of riders per day, making it faster and easier for you to travel to, from and through Mississauga and the GTA
